For those using bottles at all, how old is your baby and how many ounces do they take per feeding? Maddie is 9 weeks old and seems to be easily taking in 4 ounces.

Lily has a couple bottles of expressed breast milk per day (so daddy and brothers can feed her) and drinks 4-5 ounces at a feeding.
My integrity hasbeen questioned and I've been accused of lying. I shouldn't have shared so much of myself online, I just got too excited. This is goodbye.

Nathan is 10 weeks and takes anywhere from 4-6 oz regardless of whether it's expressed BM or formula.

Isaac is 3-4 oz every 2 1/2-3 hours... Gets a little spitty if we go over 4... I wish he'd take more than 4 so he wouldn't eat so often but oh well! :)

I'm breastfeeding and supplementing so after I nurse him I give him a chaser bottle with 2 oz in it. From what I'm pumping I figure he's getting about three ounces from me so he's probably up to about 5 oz at each feeding. He goes longer without eating at night so we don't to the supplement bottles in the middle of the night or first thing in the morning and he's been happy with that so far.

When Aubrey does get a bottle she'll usually take between 2 - 4 ounces. A lot of it, I think, depends on what nipple I give her. When I use just a basic nipple she tends to drink a lot more than when I use the Avent bottles with the larger nipples. She is 12 weeks now.
