how many bottles a day should they be drinking?..and how many ounces..I feel like my son doesn't eat a lot.
does this sound normal.? this is todays feedings 730am 6oz, 1130am 6oz, 430pm 4oz plus a lil taste of baby food. when i say lil i mean like not even half a lil jar. then 6oz again at 8pm. now he's asleep till tomorrow...7am again sometimes 6am
I think he should be eating more, my LO was having a bottle every 3 hours, 4 hours tops depending on when she woke up. And still getting up ATLEAST once in the night to eat. But all babies are different.
he sleeps through the night. from 9pm sometimes 10pm to 6am sometimes 7am after that eats every 2-5 hours..I feed him on demand not scheduled.
When my LO was 4 months she would wake up around noon, eat 4 ounces, take a nap from 1-4, eat 4 ounces, take a nap from 4-6, eat 4 ounces then eat 2-3 ounces at 8pm and 4 more ounces right before bed at around 10.
So around 18-19 ounces a day. She wasn't eat baby food then though.
He should be getting at least 28oz at this age. The average is 7-8oz, with 4-5 feedings day. My son is 4 month and eats on a schedule:
6:30-7: 8oz bottle
10-10:30: 6oz bottle, baby food
2:00: 6oz bottle
5:30: 6oz bottle
8:00 baby food
9:00: 8oz bottle, bed time!
34oz total of formula.
heres Macies Schedule.
She wakes up for good at 9 am. She has 4 oz.
11 am: 4 oz
1 pm: baby food.
3 pm:4 oz
5 pm: 4 oz
7:pm 4 oz
-bath at 7:30 asleep by 8-8:30
3 am : 4 oz
8 am:4 0z.
Even at 7 months old my LO only takes 4 6ounce bottles a day. And one meal of baby food.
I guess she's just a light eater.
