My son is 4 months old and only takes 5 oz and i just moved him to that this week... they are suppose to eat 6 oz or more at this point.. he is 15 lbs and weighed 10 lbs at his 2 month check up.
I think your baby will let you know when she is hungry and wants more... hopefully you will find out more from the doctors .... if she wasnt getting enough you would know... her cheeks would be sunken in and she will have lost weight. my nephew wasnt getting enough to eat before his 1 month check up ..my son also didnt have a good suck and at a week old i switched him to similac sensitive when i realized he didnt have enough wet diapers to be getting enough milk..
My daughter was 4 lbs 3 oz at birth and weighed something around 14 or so at a year old and now at 8 years old weighs 39 lbs ...... i dont remember how many oz of formula she drank ... but would only eat 2-3 spoons of baby food ..she was just small and her stomache couldn't hold much food ..
I would tell the doctor she is falling asleep during alot of her feeds though... as long as she is gaining weight they may not want you to up her feeds
for my great siggy
