My son wants 2 ounces, then 4 ounces, then 1 ounce, then maybe another 4 or 5 ounces. Goes to sleep for 20 minutes, wakes up wanting another 2 ounces after I just fed him 4 or 5. This is all in a 3 hour period. I don't know how he's not a big butterball.
Also, when is the next growth spurt? Is he hitting it now? It definitely seems that way.

DD1 ate 6oz bottles when she was 3 months, don't remember how often.
Don't remember how much DS ate.
DD2 is 4 months now, but last month she ate 4oz every 3-4 hours. When she started wanting to eat more often, I bumped her up to 5oz. And yeah, I believe they usually have growth spurts around this time. Pretty sure DD2 had one/is having one. She used to sleep through the night, the past month she has been waking up at least once during the night for another 5oz bottle. Growing babies!

6oz every 3 hrs like clockwork, at 4 months she went to 8 oz every 3 hrs and at 6 months she went to 10oz every 3 hrs, she is a big eater. And she started oatmeal at 4 months and table food at 6 months, before her bottles every meal and still drank that much. lol

When DD was 3 months, she ate 4 oz every 4 hours.
Maybe it's the soothing sensation he gets from eating that he likes? DD would've eaten non stop because it relaxed her so much.
It certainly could be a growth spurt.
I remember DD having one around that time. 3-4 months was pretty big. All the sudden, BAM, she had to wear bigger clothes.

Oh and usually growth spurt at 4 months or so then 6 months, but at 4 months they can go into sleep regression and it may cause them to want to eat more as well. But all babies are different anyways so.
