My doctor said that I was feeding my baby too much. What is normal? He eats between 4 and 5 ounces every 3 or 4 hours. I thought that was normal. He isnt throwing it up or anything. He wants to eat! help!

I was feeding my son 6 oz every 3-4 hours at 8 weeks. He's a big boy!!

My ds is eating anywhere from 3-5 ounces every 3-4 hours. He's 8 weeks too. My pedi said it's normal.

Sounds normal to me. I thought you were supposed to feed babies when ever they were hungry at that age.

My son was eating 8 oz bottles at 8 months. He was at 32 ounces a day (where we cut him off). Even my book from AAp says it is okay to feed them whenever they are hungry UP TO 32 ounces per day. Usually by the time they want more than the 32 ounces they are ready for solids (though not always). Sounds like you need a new ped. ;)

I meant 8 weeks not 8 months, lol.

My son is eating about 3-4 oz every 3 hours or so and is only 2 and a half weeks! he's already a pound past his birth weight but his doc thinks he's fine, just a big guy so I wouldn't worry too much about your son, he sounds normal to me

My daughter was eating 3-4 ozs every 2 -3 hrs at 8 weeks. So, yours sounds pretty much right on track.

My dd eats 5 oz every 4 hours. She is 6 weeks. My ped told me that she'll let me know when and how much.
