my guy was eating 4oz every 2 hours...which scared me because ive always heard to feed them every 3-4 hours. But he was almost 11 lbs at birth and his doc told me to feed him on demand and that he would need more b/c he was a bigger baby :)

Ok, my dd is eating about 4 oz every 3 hours. She once in a while wants a little more. She gained 3.5 lbs the first month so I was a little worried because everyone says oh my she's so big! She's 11 lbs and 5.5 weeks old.

Be careful to not overfeed your little one. Usually you need to feed just one ounce for every hour in between feedings. So for 3 hours, it would only be 3 ounces.

My doctor seems to think it is ok and if I only give her 3 oz she screams for more
