Formula Feeding Amount

When your baby is 4-6 months old, the general guideline is between 6 to 8 oz. of formula per feeding. There is also a mathematical formula to follow based on your baby’s weight in order to calculate the amount of food your infant needs per feed. I’ve put this up on a graphic for you! Remember that these are just ballpark figures and really depends on your baby’s own weight gain and development.

Baby Sleep Schedule

Once you have a set feeding schedule down, your baby’s sleep schedule should also become much more routine! This is great news for moms looking to sneak in the extra sleep. Generally, your baby should be getting ready for a nap around 2.5 hours after each feeding. With this schedule in mind, your baby will be taking morning, afternoon, and shorter, later naps.

    I have a 6 month old who is formula fed and is eating solids. She is a fussy eater between the bottle and food. Somedays I can get 4 bites of solids and other days all of the 3 tablespoon of oatmeal veg and fruit. She drinks from 4-5 ounces of formula she has 4 bottles a day. She stil wakes at night for a bottle around 2 am on average . I need help . I want her to eat better so she can sleep through the night . Suggestions ? What type of schedule should she be on ?
