    Every time I up my LO's formula intake, it must keep running into growth spurts.

    About 3 weeks ago I upped his feedings to 5 oz, then 6oz.. and now today he ate 7oz!! He is so hungry, and eats it all without discomfort or excessive spit up.

    Every time I upped it he is satisfied for a short while but then starts getting hungry after 2 hours. With 5 and 6 oz he NEVER made it longer than 4 hours between feedings.

    This is maddness. At this rate I will have to start coupon hunting :dohh:

    I didn't expect longer during the day.. but after about a week the upped amount only satisfies him for 2 hours.. just seems like a lot to me.. but as long as LO is happy.
