formula fed- how much, how often?
 
How often is your baby eating? How much?

Anna is all over the place right now. I don't know if she's gonna hit a growth spurt or if it's her teeth bothering her. Some days she'll eat 4-5 ounces every 3 hours, other days (like today) she barely puts down 2 ounces every 2-3 hours. Some nights before bed, she'll down 6-7 ounces, other nights she'll spit the bottle out at 3 ounces. It worries me, but I know she's growing and still gaining weight. I feed her when she's hungry and that's the best I can do, I guess.

Emerson is also all over the place
We generally make her between 4-5 ounces and she'll eat between every 2-3 hours. At bedtime though she's been wanting more.
So at her 730pm last nights feeding she slugged down 7 ounces.

6oz in the morning after going 9-10 hours of no formula.

4oz every 2-3 hours after that.

4oz every 2.5-3 hours

I also think that part of Anna's issue is that she's learned to play more. She's interested in sitting up, grabbing her feet, playing with a blanket, etc. Then by the time she's ready to eat, she's exhausted and only stays awake long enough to eat a few ounces. Haha. She's a super happy baby and has enough wet and dirty diapers, so I try not to worry.

Gray eats 6 oz every 4-5 hours and then 6-7 oz before bed. He will sleep for 6-7 hours after that feeding.

I make 6 ounce bottles and he usually finishes them. Sometimes a little less. Usually goes 3-4 hours. Sometimes he doesn't even make it two hours haha. Usually has last bottle of the night between 9 and 10. Sleeps 7-11 hours depending on if it is a day I work and he has to get up for daycare.

Aubrey eats between 4-5 oz every 3 hours during the day. Then at night she sleeps from about pm-4 or 5am.
