How old is your infant and howmuch he / she eat each feeding? My son is 3 weeks old, and he eats 3-4 OZ every 2 - 3 hours.

My son is 2 mos old and probably takes about 30-32 oz a day. Sometimes he takes 3 oz and sometimes 5oz, sometimes he goes 4 hours between bottles and sometimes only 2, he is hard to pin own. But he has to have rice cereal in his bottles due to reflux and before that he was taking too much formula, so the cereal has helped get him to where he needs to be. I have also started giving him oatmeal from the spoon so he learns how to eat from one. Sounds like your baby is right on track. My little chunk weighed in at 14 lb 8 oz yesterday!

my son is 4 months old and eats about 24 oz in formula, the rest is b___stmilk so hard to say what he takes - he eats every 4 hours - less sometimes - he hardly eats at night - he weighs 15.7 lbs -

I b___stfeed, but when I express a bottle, my 1month old drinks 4-5 oz usually. I feed her every 2-3 hours during the day, but at night she can go for 4-5 hours without a feed. It varies widely though, depending on her mood.

My baby girl is a little over 5 months and I'm still nursing her so it's hard to tell how much she takes in..She eats every 3-4 hours, sometimes more frequently. I am starting to wean her on Nestle's Good Start Supreme.

My almost 6 month old eats 4 8 oz bottles a day 4 oz of cereal in the morning and 4 oz of veggies at night (we are waiting just a little longer on jar fruits) during the day she will snack on frozen bananas or blueberrys or soem other fruit in her fresh food feeder.

This is really useful to me, because I haven't got a clue how much babies should eat when they're on solids, so thanks. :)

Thanks girls. Its been very useful for me as well.. as you can tell, I'm a first time mom. My son's on Enfamil Lipil since my b___stmilk doesn't supply enough.

She is almost 6 months old and has 4 x 8 1/2 oz bottles per day. I took her off solids, but will start her on again when she reaches 6 months.

I went to the doctors with my grandson today for his check up, and I asked the doctor how much a baby should be drinking, as the back of the formula can is only a rough guide for age. He said they should drink 150 mls per 1 kilogram (you will have to go to a conversion table for oz, as here in australia we do it by mls) I knew there was a formula somewhere, as I used to use it for my 2 youngest babies, 12 years ago. So as long as they are getting the minimum they require all is good :)

OOPS, as an added bit for the post above, the 150 mls per kilogram body weight is PER DAY. My grandson weighs 4.7 kilo's, he should be drining 705 mls per day, he at present drinks between 730 mls and 780 mls. We wrote down how much per feed he was having for each 24 hour period. He has around 5-6 bottles a day, and sleeps 11 hours nearly every night, he is 12 weeks old, but stays awake a lot during the day only having cat naps, which is probably why he does zonk out at is just to d__n nosy during the day to miss out on anything.
