How much to feed a 4 month old I ♥ Skylar 18 kids; North Carolina 1418 posts

How much do you ladies feed your 4-month olds? We just recently starting giving her 5 oz of formula but she screams when its all gone so I think we need to increase it. I'm not sure how much she is getting from the b**b but I want to make sure that the amount of formula matches the amount of breastmilk. She lost some weight and I want her to gain it back but I don't want to over-feed her and definitely not starve her.



HELPPPPPP! please and thank you!

I would ask your dr. Alla (my daughter) ate 4-5oz every three hours. she will be better when she starts solids. she maybe ready for cereal already! check with your dr. hope that helped some.

my son is 3 months and 2 weeks. He eats 4-6oz every 3 hours. He is still skinny though.

Harrison's feeding schedule at 4 months (per his pediatrician):

Breakfast
2 tbs. rice cereal & 6 oz formula

Midmorning
6 oz formula

Lunch
6 oz formula

Afternoon
5 oz juice (1/2 juice, 1/2 water)

Dinner
2 tbs. rice cereal
6 oz formula

Bedtime (optional)
4 oz formula


Also, one thing I have noticed with Harrison is he will cry once the bottle is taken out of his mouth even if he's full. He just wants to keep s*****g. So I either entertain him for a minute or two (until he forgets about the bottle) or substitute with a paci.

Good luck! :)
