my boys 2 months now and will only take 4-41/2 oz's is this normal?
Yep... the last time I saw my friend with her 3 month old he was still drinking out of those little 4oz bottles...
How long does he last between feeds?
emily's 5 months and on 5oz bottles still
she was on 4oz bottles until about 3 1/2 months
goes 3 hours in the day but it can b longer in the night, ive tried getting him in a routine but i cant.
3 hours during the day is perfect. If you don't mind me asking...what problems did you have with a routine?
my lo drank 4oz every 2 hours till she was 4 months its only now she manages 6oz
Mia's 2 month and she does either 4 or 5 ounce bottles, but she has one every 4 hours and then goes all night without. I think they are all different and as long as they are happy and gaining weight I wouldnt worry.
My LO is 5 months and still drinks only 4-5 oz every 2-3 hrs. He won't take more during the day. At night when he's half asleep I manage to sneak in 6oz only because he keeps drinking until it's all gone.
Elyse was still on 2-3oz at that point.. I think that sounds fine As long as he continues to eat at regular intervals and gains weight.
Phoebe still only drinks 4-5oz at 5 months, she used to drink 6oz at 2 months so i'm not sure whats gone wrong.
My big boy still only has 4oz at some feedings. He didn't go up to 5oz unless he was in a growth spurt. But then, I don't know if he's realized he's 6months old, but he can go through bigger bottles now. He set a record tonight... drank 9oz! And that was only a couple hours after he ate a 4oz bottle!
I know at 4 and 5 months especially I would worry. Some days he'd barely get through more than 20oz. But he's managed to be at the 90th centile for height and 75th for weight despite it all!
