He is three weeks old and.....

and he is finishing 3 1/2 ounces of formula so quicky. Do you think it is ok to up him to 4 ounces or is that too much for him as he is only three weeks old?

If he is completely emptying a 3.5 oz bottle then yes, I would put a little more in there. If he doesn't finish a full 4oz, that's fine too. They say that they shouldn't be emptying the bottle completely.

Re: He is three weeks old and.....

My daughter is 5 weeks and i think its okay to up to 4 ozs - we did with her on occasion - just remember they sometimes grow through a growth spurt on certain days....

I know with Julia - there are days where she will drink 5 ozs and days where she is content with 3.5 oz - so you never know at this point....

If you see your baby is still hungry - give more - i find that it doesn't always mean that the next feeding they will be drinking the same amount.....
