    It's normal for them to change on a almomst daily basis. He is also getting close to a growth spurt, no worries. Babies eat until they are full.

    I would feed him until he's full. But I've never limited Matt on how much he ate which shocked my Dad. He'd eat 4 oz and still be hungry so I'd get him two more ounces. I'm not sure at that age since I was breasfeeding at that point. But he eats up to 8 oz right now. I'm sure he's fine with how much he's eating.

    as long as he is keeping it down i dont see a problem. i know he has had problems with gaining weight, so it might be better for him to eat more. but if he starts to spit up alot of it maybe take it down to 5 oz.
