My daughter is 4 weeks & has been taking 4oz every 3 hours for a couple of weeks. And she would take more if offered it! Lol. She also has to have a dummy in to be winded during her bottle or she screams until she gets her bottle back. Little miss greedy!! Lol. What weight is she?
If she is finishing most of her bottles it's probably time to try making 5oz and see how she gets on. It could be she is wanting feeds closer together because she is hungry quicker if you get me.
You can't overfeed a baby at this age, they take what they need to develop.
Fran was born bang on the 50th centile and rocketed up to between the 91st and 98th but our hv wasn't concerned because it will all settle down once she gets on the move. In fact her weight gain has slowed down in the last few weeks and she has started to follow a curve rather than spiking upwards.
As I said before there is a growth spurt around this time too and most babies want feeding alot more often. Fran always fed 3-4 hourly but would go as little as 2-2.5hrs when she had a spurt - we struggled to fill her lol.
