    Question How much milk does your baby drink

    Advertisements
    during the entire day? Ds is at 5oz in his bottle, but he has only been drinking 20-25oz a day.

    My friend told me that a baby should drink 32oz a day...is that true?

    Does that seem right, i feed him when he is hungry and he is still gaining weight.

    he is 4 months and at his last check up he weighed 11.1

    Hayden eats 6-7 ounces. Not all babies eat the same amount. I am sure your baby is fine eating what he is eating.

    Another way to express this rule of thumb is that the average baby takes 2 or 3 ounces of formula each day for every pound of body weight, up to a maximum of 32 ounces. A newborn weighing 7 lbs. will take an average of 14-21 ounces of formula in a day. A 4-month-old weighing 14 pounds needs 28-32 ounces

    As long as he is gaining weight okay I really would not worry about it.
    An unconditional right to say what one pleases about public affairs is what I consider to be the minimum guarantee of the First Amendment.

    If he is gaining weight and has lots of wet diapers, then there isn't much to worry about, I'm sure. The only time you'd really need to worry is if he stops peeing a lot or it gets really yellow/smelly and if he starts LOSING weight. Babies don't know how to over or under eat though unless they are forced to. They just eat what they need

    my little girl drink about a gallon of milk every two days, but she's now two. Back when I was bottle feeding her she had an 8 oz bottle every three hours.
    For his age, I'd be giving him about 4 oz. every three hours.

    Zayne eats 6 ounces every 4-5 hours and sleeps through the night. So, in a 24 hour period he eats about 30-36 ounces.
