    So, just out of curiosity, how many ounces does you LO eat? and how old are they?

    I want to make sure she is kind of on the right track, haha.

    DD eats 4 ounces every 3-5 hours.

    Little man eats 3-4 ounces every 2-3 hours. Nighttime, he can go up to 5hrs in between. He's my gigantic Spartan Baby!

    multiply her weight by 2.5 and that's how much formula she needs every 24 hours.

    DS is eating 6 oz every 3 1/2-4 hours. But he's 5 months.

    ETA that rule only applys when they aren't on solids yet though.

    I am not exactly sure since I am still primarily BFing but at night he is still getting his 5oz bottle and the last week or so that has not been enough. He eats every 3 hours, sometimes going 4 or 5 at night.

    Peanut eats between 3 and 5 ounces every 2 to 4 hours. She's in a weird stage this week. She can't decide if she wants 3 ounces every 2 hours or 5 ounces every 4 hours or 5 ounces every 2 hours. It's annoying because I have 4 ounce bottles and 8 ounce bottles.

    As soon as I make a 4 ounce bottle she wants 5 ounces. If I make a bigger bottle she only wants 3 ounces. Peanut plays these games to make me insane. I just know it.
    I would like to be with my for a while but thats what made me so tired in the first place!

    Sounds like Muffin (except she nurses)... this last week she can't decide if she wants to eat every 2 hours, every 3 hours, or every 4 hours.... I plan an outing based on how she's been eating and of course she changes it up on me. These April babies are just determined to be difficult.
