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.
