I feed my little boy 3 3oz bottles a day sometimes four but I br___tfeed aswell but after eating a 3 ounce bottle he is still hungry and so I feed him the br___t for about 30 min 15 min on each br___t and that does not fill him up. Should I start giving him 4 ounces or what is the problem? I know he is growing but my daughter was never like this.

Some babies are just big eaters. Mason had already hit the 32 ounce mark by 8 weeks! The ped had us start solids early with him because he is such a big eater. If he's hungry let him chow down. :)

My son was like that around a month. i attributed it to a growth spurt as well. He may also be nursing on you for comfort rather than hunger.

My 2 month old is going through that right now. He ate 7 oz in 3 hours

I gave my ds 4 and sometimes 5 ounces a feeding, plus b___st. I think they don't get as much b___st milk as you think when you do both. I eventually had to stop the b___st at around 9 weeks since he was then drinking even more. He's 3.5 months now and 15 lbs.

Just asking....does he have Down's Syndrome? Babies with Down's do not register that they are full. I a__sume you would mention if he had it, but just in case I thought I would ask. (btw, I'm NOT saying that he has Down's either as you would very well know if he did....I just thought I would mention that so no one thinks I'm trying to insinuate that something is wrong with your baby.) Other than that I would say you just have a baby with a good appet_te!

He is very healthy but just likes to eat alot I started feeding him 4 ounces now and he is still the same way. I guess he is a growing baby. My b___sts do not produce enough but I still feed him it.

Does he take a pacifier?..some babies just like the comfort of sucking and will eat just to suck. Also, he is more able to control the flow from the b___st by the manner in which he sucks and tongue placement...so he may really not be eating that much at the b___st, but doing it for comfort. Just a thought.
