How many oz for 7 week old?


For those who formula feed, how many oz does/did your seven week old eat each feeding? How often?

They should have as much as they want as often as they want. At 7 weeks, I would say that was probably around 60-90ml every 3-4 hours, maybe 8 feeds a day, but that was partly breast milk and partly formula. She wasn't a very big eater. But really as much as they want and whenever they seem hungry. If your LO is draining every single bottle, I'd offer more until you get to a point where he/she is leaving a little and being satiated after a feed.

She usually eats 3 to 5 oz each feeding but earlier she had almost 8 at one feeding. Seems like a lot??

My almost 8 week old. Takes anywhere between 3 -5oz . 8 bottles in 24hrs.

8 does seem like a big jump. But you r suppose to feed on demand so baby obviosly wanted it!

My 9 week old used to eat 5 oz every 2 hours but has slowed down to about 4oz every 2-3 hours. She's a big baby though, 15.5lbs already

My 5 week old has been drinking 4-5oz since he was about 3 weeks old and goes anywhere between 2-4 hours between feeds having 7or8 bottles a day. Every baby is different and needs different amounts, I thought 5oz sounded like a lot at 3 weeks but he obviously needed that amount.

Thanks ladies!

She usually has 5 or 6 bottles per day but she didn't drink 8oz each feeding yesterday. Usually about 26 oz per day total.
