At 7 months old, your baby should be able to go longer than 2 or 2.5 hours between bottles. If I remember correctly, DS would go 4 hours between bottles then, and if he had a meal in there, it would be 6+ hours between bottles.

I'd up the 4 oz to 6 oz and see how your baby does.

feeding schedule for 7 month old

My LO is 7 months old, her schedule is:

7am - 4oz formula bottle

9am- 3oz yogurt 2oz fruit puree
10:30-4oz BM bottle

12:30 - 4oz of veggie puree 2oz fruit puree
1:30- 4oz BM bottle

4:00 4oz BM bottle

6:00 Nurse when I get home
7:00 4oz Veggie/Meat Puree 2oz fruit puree

9-9:30 4 oz Formula bottle

My DD has never taken more than 4oz at a time and used to eat evry 2 and a half hours. BM gets digested much faster than Formula so just let baby eat. I dont think you are over feeding. Before age 1 90% of babys nutrients come from BM or formula. I would not take away feeding or space them out any differently.

Also wanted to add that my DD will wake at times around 4 am. Not every night but I will nurse her back to sleep. Bf babies wont eat more than they need, I truly believe if baby is hungry feed her. Nursing is her comfort. I have a big girl too. She is in the 99th percentile for both height and weight so I believe she is in a constant growth spurt. LOL
