How many ounces of formula does your LO have at each feeding?

How often do they eat?

Vivi generally does 4-4.5 during the day and goes anywhere from 3-4 hours between feedings. Before bed at night we do 5ish and she sleeps basically through the night. This am she took 6 tho! Granted then she slept 5am-9:15 am, girl was hungry! It depends on the day though and if she's backed up or something. Some days wer're back down to 3-3.5. All depends!

6 oz per bottle every 3-4 hours ( minus his long afternoon nap). Then at night he gets a bottle at around 9 and sleeps till we get up for work and feed him at about 6am.

Usually 4oz every 2, occasionally 3hrs. But the past few days I'm doing good to get him to eat 3oz about every 2-3hrs. Not sure whats going on. Plus it's taking him FORVER to eat a bottle! I'm pretty sure the hole needs bigger but I tried the medium flow and it poured out too fast so idk what to do about that.

4 ozs. Sometimes 3 oz. Every once in a while she will take 6 oz, but rarely.

She usually goes every 2-3 hours except at night (she sleeps from about 10 or 11 to 6 or 7) and when she takes her long afternoon/evening nap.

Evan is taking 5 oz (at 11 wks old) still every 2-3 hours. He's also moved up to medium flow nipples. Daycare folks mentioned it was taking him well over 30 minutes to finish a bottle and with 7 other babies it was just too long. He seems to have adjusted fine.

At 3 months and 11 pounds, J takes 3-4 oz at a time, every 3-4 hours during the day. He takes between 20-24 oz in a 24 hour period. His formula is mixed to 22 calories per ounce so he doesn't need to drink more to get all of his calories.

I'm trying to get him to drink a little more at a time so we can get to feeding him less frequently, but so far, no dice. (And at only 11 pounds, I'm guessing his belly isn't big enough to hold 6 oz at a time?)
