Sleeping Pattern Of A 4 Month Formula Fed Baby

Just wondering what everyones babies are doing as far as schedules? My little guy goes to sleep around 8 at night (fed around 6) and then I feed him at 10 and he sleeps til 6 am but doesnt start to cry to be fed, I just automatically feed him cause I get up when I hear him. He then naps from about 8:30-9:30 and then again aroun 12-1:30 and then from about 3:30-5. I am mainly asking because this morning I gave him his soother while I was getting his formula ready and he totally went back to sleep, I eventually woke him up because I am really not sure how long is normal that they go without eating?? (Re 10pm-6am). Whats everyone doing at 4 months?

Gabriel sleeps from about 9pm - 9 am, on average. He is 4 months old. Actually last night, he last fed at 8pm, went bed at 9:30ish, and woke up at 8 am, but didn't cry... he just kicked his piano, and cooed for an hour.

oh, he's formula fed too.

my son is almost 4 months on the 26 of this month. I have acutally posted here before because I was stressing out that he doesnt eat a lot and way less than when he was in infant. He is b___st fed all day except for his last bottle. he goes to bed at 8 then eats at 11 then sleeps until 6 but doesnt want to eat until 9. And he usually is still not hungry at 9 I have to insist on him drinking his bottle because that is just too many hours without food. He probably has a total of 10 oz before 4 after 4 he finally gets his appet_te. I am thinking of calling the dr. today. Because I am worried. How many oz. do all of your babies drink in 24 hours?

Gabriel doesn't drink very much at all! Even on days that I dont give him cereal. He will probably only eat 20 - 24 oz. a day of formula. Worries me, but he's gaining weight, and growing good.


monica to chelsey - November 15

makes me feel better. I wonder why they dont eat that much and they still gain weight? maybe they need more milk when they are infants. Calebs drinks around 28-30 on a good day. Maybe forumula has more calories and they get fuller quicker....

I'm not sure what it is, but with my daughter, I'm positive that she was drinking like 32oz or more a day at 4 months. Maybe I'm wrong....
