I know every baby is different but I'm just curious how many oz. your 5 month olds eat at each feeding and how long they go between feedings?

my 5 month old has no interest in cereal or baby food but takes about 8 oz of formula at a time about 5 times a day

My 5.5-month-old is on a great eating schedule: he eats at 8am, 12pm, 4pm and 8pm. The first and last feedings are only a 7-ounce bottle (sometimes he doesn't finish the 8am one). The 12pm feeding he gets a fruit and the 4pm is rice cereal. For all 4 bottles, I usually make a 7-ounce but he doesn't always finish it. He goes 12 hours between his last feeding of the day and the next morning's bottle, and 4 hours in between each day-time feeding.

I don't really know since I b'feed, but is anyone having problems keeping lo's attention during feedings?? Either bottle or b___st he is ALL over the place. It takes forever to feed him now b/c half the time he is either playing, talking, or trying to grab things haha!!!
