I've read the sticky for formula amounts, but I'm curious, for those with babies older than 3 months, how much they were eating per feeding. Eric will only take 4oz per feeding, and he'll eat every 3 hours (except overnight). I can't coax him to eat any more than that unless he's having a growth spurt, if he does actually take the bottle he'll spit it right back up! He's growing fine, but since 2 months my ped has been saying he should be eating 6oz per bottle?

I'm not really concerned, since he IS growing well, his diapers are fine, etc... I'm more curious if he's that different.

My DS was eating 4-6oz every 2 hours at 3 month. He was a piggy lol! Now he eats 6oz every 3-4 hours at 8 months. If your son is gaining weight and isnt dehydrated then I believe he will be ok. Im not a doctor but Ive read on boards where some babies just arent as hungry as some but they grow up just fine.

As long as he is gaining weight I wouldn't worry. I think it is pretty normal for them to still be taking only about 4oz per feeding at that point.

We had Jocelyn on 6oz every 3-4 hours but she spit up more it seemed and she didn't always eat it all, so we put her back on 5oz and she eats every 3 hours, sometimes every 4 except for during the night, she sleeps pretty well.
