found this on drsears, hope it helps - How much formula do I feed my baby, and how often? As you develop a bottle-feeding routine for you and your baby, the two of you will work out which formula is best, how much, and how often. This routine may change as your baby grows. As a general guide: Between birth and six months of age your baby will need an average of 2 to 2.5 ounces of formula per pound per day. So, if your baby weighs ten pounds, she will need 20 to 25 ounces per day. Newborns may take only an ounce or two at each feeding One to two months: 3 to 4 ounces per feeding Two to six months: 4 to 6 ounces per feeding Six months to a year: as much as 8 ounces at a feeding Small, more frequent feedings will work better than larger ones spaced farther apart. Your baby's tummy is about the size of his fist. Take a full bottle and place it next to your baby's fist and you'll see why tiny tummies often spit the milk back up when they're given too much at one time.
