Yeah, I have always heard you can't overfeed a baby, unless they start to spit up. Which then it's an issue. But if she is happily eating that much, it is probably fine.

My nephew would eat almost 60 ounces a day when he was about 2 months old. The kid was a beast!! When my brother asked the pediatrician about it, she said the same thing - you can't over feed a baby, but it is wise to try and keep it below 40 ounces a day.

On average, a one month old will eat 18-26 oz./day
If you use the formula for figuring out the rough estimate, (9.18 lbs x 2.5 ounces = 22.975) She should be drinking about 23 ounces a day, or 6 four ounce feedings. If she's going through a growth spurt, she could be needing more. Or maybe she just needs more, as every baby is different

As long as she is happy and full, I wouldn't about it
