I just checked an old tin, I think it says 28-30 oz. Omar was taking 16-20 oz at your LO's age, his maximum was 24 oz at 4 months, then he went back to 18-20 oz at 5 months.

Wha's on the tin is only a guideline, some babies take more & some take less.

My LO is 12 weeks on Monday and she is taking 6oz bottles six times a day which seems a lot to me but they seem happy enough with her as she is a bigger baby.. last weigh in last week was 13lb 10oz!!

DD continued to stay on her curve [50th-75th percentile] at that age with 22-26oz daily.

I was wondering the same, my LO is 10 weeks old next week and he has 6 4oz bottles a day and someone told me he's not eating enough and to try him on 5oz bottles ..he doesn't seem hungrier otherwise he'd surely cry for more milk? ..anyways, I tried him on 5oz bottles and he kept leaving 1oz so he didn't need 5oz, but for the last 3 days he's been having 1 5oz bottle a day, so maybe he's kinda weaning himself onto 5oz bottles?

My cousin said her LO at 10 weeks was on 5 7oz bottles a day!?
