My daughter is 2 months old and formula fed.
Hi!Both of my babies were/are formula fed. :) My first was more of a scheduled eater. He ate every 3-4 hours and was progressively moving up in ounces.
Now this little chickie is a whole new ball game. She'll be 13 weeks on Friday and still is eating about 2-4 ounces every 2-4 hours. :/I believe in feeding on demand but at the same time I don't want her snacking all day long (see my other post about snacking).
If it were me, I'd feed her what she eats and talk to your ped about her health/growth rate. My little one grew 2" in length in 1 month and gained almost two pounds. Good luck to you!!

This is a common question that we get in the office. It is reasonable for a two month infant to be feeding every 3 -4 hours during the day. In terms of volumes for feeds, you should not be preoccupied with exact volumes for each feed. Babies have variable feeding patterns. Some babies feed more often during the day but give mothers longer breaks at night while others feed almost like clockwork. Furthermore, there are growth spurts that many babies seem to go through approximately at 2 months of age.
