Depends on baby's weight and how many feeds a day you give them but really if you are demand feeding and baby is happy and healthy you are probably doing great! :-)

Nope. My daughter was eating that much every 3 hours

She weighed 7lbs 14oz on her last weight in. One oz away from her original birth weight. And she pretty much eats 2-3 4at the most.

My daughter drank four ounces every two and a half to three hours since she was less than a week old
