I think he should be eating more, my LO was having a bottle every 3 hours, 4 hours tops depending on when she woke up. And still getting up ATLEAST once in the night to eat. But all babies are different.

When my LO was 4 months she would wake up around noon, eat 4 ounces, take a nap from 1-4, eat 4 ounces, take a nap from 4-6, eat 4 ounces then eat 2-3 ounces at 8pm and 4 more ounces right before bed at around 10.

So around 18-19 ounces a day. She wasn't eat baby food then though.

He should be getting at least 28oz at this age. The average is 7-8oz, with 4-5 feedings day. My son is 4 month and eats on a schedule:



6:30-7: 8oz bottle
10-10:30: 6oz bottle, baby food
2:00: 6oz bottle
5:30: 6oz bottle
8:00 baby food
9:00: 8oz bottle, bed time!



34oz total of formula.

Even at 7 months old my LO only takes 4 6ounce bottles a day. And one meal of baby food.
I guess she's just a light eater.
