If you formula feed your baby...

How much does your baby weigh and how much does your baby drink in one sitting and how many times a day do they eat?

I'm trying to establish some kind of feeding schedule with Lilah, but sometimes she goes two hours between eating and sometimes 4-5 hours. I feed her til shes full and whenever she is hungry, but its never the same amount. I was wondering where everyone else was at.

Gray is a little over 12lbs. He eats 5oz every 3-4 hours. Then he eats 6 oz before bed and will sleep 5 hours after that.

Anna was 10lbs a couple weeks ago (we go for her official 2 month check up today). She's all over the place right now with eating. For a few days she'd eat 3 ounces, then an hour later act like she was starving and eat another 2 ounces, then 2 hours later eat one ounce. Now she seems to have slowed down again and is back to only eating a 2 ounces about every 90 minutes-2 hours, but sometimes if I can get her to sleep more than 45 minutes, she'll eat 3 ounces. Then starting in the evening she'll eat 5 ounces within an hour, get a bath, then eat another 2 ounces before going down for 5 hours.

I hope that she evens out a little bit because I really feel like this is why her napping is so out of whack, but if she acts hungry, I'm going to feed her. I'm also going to talk to the doctor about this today and see if I can get some advice.

Not totally sure on Eli's weight, but if I weigh us together and then just me, the difference is 9.5 so close to that. He was 6 14 when he was born and he's almost 7 weeks.
He eats 3oz every 2 hours when he is awake. At night he will sleep 5-7 hours at once without eating

I thought perhaps she was eating too much, but she seems to be pretty much the same as you eshute. Let me know what your doc says.

baby girl hasn't been to the dr since mid july so not sure her weight, than she was 9lbs 4 ounces, shes definitely put on at least another pound
she eats 3.5 to 4 ounces at a feeding. On average its been every 2 hours during the day
she does sleep a solid 8 hours at night so i say shes making up for lost time

Aubrey eats 4oz every 3 hours. But can go 4-5 hours in early morning cause she has a bottle at 3:30am and then doesn't want one when we get up at 5:30 for work and she eats maybe around 7:00am at the daycare. She is currently sleeping about 5-6 hours at night so she goes that entire time without eating.

But some days she eats every 2 hours and I think she is just going through growth spurts as her every 3 hour schedule is pretty consistent. She weight 12lbs 2oz at about 6 weeks.

We are going to the doctor for our 8 wk checkup this Friday, so I am not sure how much Leona currently weighs. She weighed 10lbs 5 oz in mid July at 3.5 weeks. I am thinking she is approx 12 lbs now at 8 weeks.
She usually eats every 2 to 3 hours during the day, and takes anywhere from 2.5oz to 4 oz. The longest she has gone at night was 6 hours.
