It is important to remember that all babies are different some like to snack more often, and others drink more at one time and go longer between feedings.
However, most babies will drink more and go longer between feedings as they get bigger and their tummies can hold more milk :
· Most newborns eat every 2 to 3 hours, or 8 to 12 times every 24 hours. Babies might only take in half ounce(20/40ml) per feeding for the first day or two of life, but after that will usually drink 1 to 2 ounces at each feeding.This amount increases to 2 to 3 ounces (60 / 90 ml) by 2 weeks of age.
· At about 2 months of age, babies usually take 4 to 5 ounces per (120 / 150 ml) feeding every 3 to 4 hours.
· At 4 months, babies usually take 4 to 6 ounces (120 / 170 ml) per feeding.
· At 6 months, babies may be taking up to 8 ounces (180 / 240 ml) every 4 to 5 hours.Most babies will increase the amount of formula they drink by an average of 1 ounce (20 ml) each month before leveling off at about 7 to 8 ounces( 200/ 240 ml) per feeding. Solid foods should be started at about 6 months old.
