    Mine has been on 5 oz bottles since 1 week. Is that alot? The side of the sma tin says that for a 2 month baby, tho I suppose thats just an estimate

    It probably is just an estimate, nobody can tell you how hungry your LO is except for your LO. Is it always 5 oz because Brianna sometimes eats about 6 oz and she's still hungry and sometimes all she'll eat is about 3.

    they all different at drinking, rhys been drinking the same amount from 4 weeks old which is 4 oz, he is 11wks and still drinks 4oz.
    i think as long as she's not gorging himself and throwing it back up she's fine with that

    Let your LO tell you how much she wants to eat :) You can't very well feed her less, she'll just cry until she gets the amount she wants.

    Elyse takes 3-4oz every 2-4 hours.
