If you are bottle feeding, either BM or formula, how many ounces are your babies eating these days?

Ive just started giving DS a few bottles of breastmilk so he can get used to it. The first two bottles he drank 2 oz and last night he took over 3 oz.

We're doing 3 ounces (BM, but sometimes formula) every 3 hours or so. I swear half of it ends up down her chin and into her neck rolls.

Claire is not quite 3 weeks old.

Brock if formula only. He's 61/2 weeks old and takes 4 ounces 6 times a day. He's been on 4 ounces since 4 weeks old, he's starting to give signs that we need to move up to 5 ounces so that may be tomorrow.

Kody usually takes between 3-4 oz at a time. He has a serious leak though, I have to put a towel under his chin or he'd be soaked afterward! lol.

Wyatt takes 3oz formula every 2 hours. If he had it HIS way- it would be every hour and a half. So annoying- I wish he would take more oz and go 3-4 hours!
