In the first few weeks, hubby and I were worried about the same thing. My daughter is 9 weeks today, and she drinks anywhere from 27 to 33 oz in a day. We usually feed on demand but make sure to eliminate other causes for upset before offering milk. She's taking 4 oz per feeding and averages 3 hours between feedings but can go as long as 5 hours at times. Basically, we have a big girl with a big appetite but she's healthy and growing along her percentile and the doctors are very happy with her growth. It's easy to get caught up in the numbers game but for every average baby there are plenty of healthy kids who eat a lot more or less. As long as baby gets all his needs met, and the doctors are happy with his progress, a few extra oz of breast milk aren't going to hurt. Good luck and congrats on a healthy baby boy.
