From what I've read, it is possible to over feed by bottle, but not by breast. The reason is that the way babies eat from a bottle is different from the breast, they are able to regulate it better by just breastfeeding. I dont think babies eat 5oz at one breastfeeding session, at least not this young, and especially at night. It's still important for milk supply to nurse frequently at night (or else that stupid AF will come sooner rather than later, for some women).

This is all stuff Ive read on BFing websites, so take it for what it's worth!
