How much formula does your baby drink?

newmomJanuary 30, 2002

For those of you who do not breastfeed, I am curious how much formula your baby takes at each feeding, and how much each day. Taylor is 3 months and takes about 6-8 5oz bottles of formula a day. Thanks.

My daughter Abigail is also three months. She is taking just about the same amount of formula - 6-8 bottles that are 5 ounces. The first bottle in the morning and the last bottle at night are usually between 6-7 ounces.

Nyomi is almost 11 weeks and we *offer* her 6 bottles (every 4 hours or so) that have about 6 ounces. Sometimes she drinks all 6 and sometimes only 4...

I guess that's about the same amount...
about 30 + a day!

love, jami

Logan is 4 1/2 months and he is now drinking about the same amount but less times a day and more per feeding. He takes about 5 bottles total and all are around 6 oz. About 3 weeks ago we started incorporating rice cereal in the evening (about 2-3 tbs) mixed w/ formula and that has helped him skip that midnight feeding. He now sleeps (usually-knock on wood) from 8pm to 6am, but I have to make sure I feed him right before he goes to bed, like 7:45. I learned that the hard way!

Kayla is 3 months also and drinks about the same in a 24 hour period. Some days she is hungrier than other days. Her doctor said she can range from 16 oz to 32 oz a day.

She seems to eat like me..either she is starving and she will drink 2 bottles in a row or she is okay and will "slowly" drink a little.
