How Much Food

My 5 week old seems to be eating nonstop! He's on formula and drinks a little over 4 oz at a time. Should I be giving him more? Any advice would be appreciated!

As long as you don't go over 32 ounces a day it's okay. If he's hungry, feed him. At 5 weeks my little guy was eating a 6 oz bottle every 3-4 hours. Some babies are just little piggies. :)

ok...there is a conversion, you go by there weight to how much per DAY they should be drinking For every kilo in body weight, they should be having 150 mls...so my lil girl is 4.5kilos, she should be drining 675 mls per day, as long as she has this amount in a 24 hour period, she is eating enough to maintain her weight. If you need a conversion to oz's and lb's use a conversion tool. hope this helps.
