For some 1 month infants it is normal to consume 4ozs every 2 hours. Your infant will start to want more soon, 5ozs, then 6ozs and so on as they grow. As they grow, the time between feedings should lengthen, 4 hours, etc.; then advance to basically 3-4 times a day (similar to meal times) and a bottle before bed which may have them sleep 6-7 hours through the night (from 3-4 months old). Hope this helped you.
