My baby is 2 months old. How much formula is your 2 month old babies drinking in a 24 hour period. When did you notice them start sleeping for longer periods on a regular basis? My ds drinks about 5-6 oz. every 3-4 hours. The odd time he will go 4 or 5 hours without eating and he is just starting to take 6 oz at a feeding. I am worried he isn't getting enough. Please help!

My baby is 2 months as well, and a piggy. He eats anywhere between 5 oz and 8 oz every 3-4 hours. I followed my ped's advice and feed until he stops eating or pulls off the bottle repeatedly. He is very obvious when he is done. My baby JUST started sleeping 5-6 hours at night straight-anywhere from 9:30-midnight until at least 5 am. Thank goodness.

Thanks for replying. Maybe my little guy just isn't a big eater. He has plenty of wet diapers and a few dirty ones each day and he is putting on weight so I am not really worried.

Hey mandee25!! My son is 2 months too, 10 weeks to be exact, and he eats about 4 oz every 3-4 hours, sometimes he'll want 6 oz, but not usually. He just recently (this past week) has been sleeping really well, with 6-7 hour stretches! boy am i loving it! He's alread 12 lbs 2 oz too!!!! He's a big boy. I just feed him when he's hungrey, i think as long as your lo is satisfied, feed him when he wants!!

Mandee.. thank you soo much for asking this question!! I was sure if Ka__sidy was eating too much or too little... Shes almost 2 months and she eats 4 oz every 4 to 8 hours. Sometimes she even goes a little bit longer and sleeps for 9 or 10 hours. Lately at bedtime she has wanted 6oz though. Thank you soo much for this question again.. its nice to know she is in the normal realm of things!! ~Kristin~
