    jack was taking 40-50oz a day last week. But I've been told I'm over feeding him and that he's just comfort sucking. So had to cut it down, managed to get him to 30oz over last two days but it should be about 25oz (or so I've been told). He does seem to be taking his milk much better now thou and isn't messing about as much.

    They say you are supposed to take their body weight and times it by 2.5 to give how many oz. Liss sometimes has 4 x 8 oz bottles or 5 depends if she sleeps through. She is 16lb and should be on 40oz which is spot on if she has the 5 bottles, but she is a little pigglet cos she has 10 mins of boob too most feeds lol HV made me feel loads better though as my little munchkin is a long baby so her height coincides with her weight. Wooo

    So how much does he weigh? Although I wouldn't worry too much if hes eating enough to satisfty him, unless he isn't putting on weight of course!

    You are more or less spot on then calculating it that way. I did 10lb x 2.5 its 25oz so seems like he is eating more or less what he should be. Those remember are just rough guidelines so all is good. He will tell you if he wants more lol

    Jayden is a piggy, he likes his milk, he has 36oz (6 bottles x 6oz each), 3 of them (night bottles) are hungrier baby milk and other 3 are normal formula.
    I think u should give as much as ur baby needs, my HV has told me that Jayden is thriving and putting on weight steadily so Im not worrying, Im sure he will cut down alot on formula when he starts weaning
