Feeding

I had a question on feeding,  when you all brought your little ones home how much did they eat and how many times a day?  I would just like to know how much they ate once they were home, 3 months and around 6 months.  Thanks a bunch!

my baby is 3 1/2 weeks old (but born 4 weeks early, so these numbers may be a bit off since she was so small). she gets expressed breast milk. when we first brought her home, we had to wake her every 2 hours to feed her. sometimes we'd let her go three. now she wakes on her own like clockwork every 2 hours to feed. occasionally, if we're lucky and she's extra tired, she'll go up to 3 hours, but it's rare. (by the way, it's 2 hours from start time to start time, and there's times where it takes her an hour to eat... which means only an hour in between!) currently she takes about 3 ounces at each feeding, but will let us know if she wants a little more. when we first brought her home she was getting 1 to 1.5 ounces the first few days, but jumped up to 2 ounces shortly after.
it's very tiring to keep up with her schedule, especially since i need to take the time between feedings to pump, but it's very rewarding to see her grow and gain weight so quickly.
