    Abigail has a bottle every 3 hours usually although we are still feeding on demand and she will go 5-6 hours at night. She usually takes 60-100mls in the day and at night (after the 5-6hrs) she will take 100-120ml. I have no idea if this is normal, but she screams if she's hungry so I'm sure she's getting what she needs :)

    Every 3 hours or so, but without a feed for 8-10 hours at night. He took approx 5-6oz at that age. He's quite similar still now, although takles 6-7oz per feed x

    My LO is on 4oz every 3-4 hours. I feed her when she wants but is usually around the 3 hour mark. Sometimes she only has 2/3oz and she does a 5 hour stint through the night. X

    At around 7 weeks Sam suddenly wanted more and more and worked his way quickly up to 7oz bottles, although he did manage to reduce them to 5 a day. Strangely he never really increased this, he was still on the same when we started weaning at 6 months.

    The HV did say it was a lot but he was gaining weight on the same percentile curve so I think it's just that he such an active baby - spent nearly all day kicking at that age :)

    If you are worried maybe get your LO weighed to make sure they aren't gaining more weight than expected?
