    My seven week old is only drinking 5 bottles a day... they are 5 oz so she's getting 25oz a day which I think is a good amount... but I was wondering how many bottles/ounces other babies take around this age?

    Gianna takes her last bottle around 8 or 9 and then sleeps from about 11pm-5:30am. Then she goes about 4 hours in between bottles.

    My daughter is 6mos. She takes 4-6oz 5 times a day (about 25oz per day). She also has 3 meals a day - about 16oz of cereal/fruit/veggie.

    wake up breastfeed: (4-6oz?)
    breakfast: cereal/fruit w/ 4oz bottle
    2hr nap
    lunch: vegetable/fruit w/ 4oz bottle
    snack: 2oz bottle (only when she gets fussy)
    1-2hr nap
    dinner: vegetable/fruit w/ 4oz bottle
    bed time breastfeed: 4oz (?)
    10-11hr overnight sleep

    At her last check she was 9.2, I'm guessing she's at least ten pounds now. She was born 6 lbs 14 oz.

    Sounds great Hun. Omar's max was 24 oz at 4 months. At 7 weeks he couldn't go for more that 18 oz. He was a big baby but not a big drinker

    My LO turned 7 weeks old last Sunday. She takes 6oz at a time, usually 5-6 bottles a day, so 30-36oz in a 24-hour period.

    As a general guideline on our Milupa Milumil formula box, babies between the ages of 5 and 8 weeks should be drinking 5 6oz bottles each day, so my LO is right on target usually, but occasionally has an extra bottle if she spits up a lot (poor thing has got reflux).
