You could always try using a slower teat, it can trick babies who eat a lot into thinking they have had more than they have as there stomachs will get full quicker. So your son may drop to 150ml instead, anything from 18 oz-32oz a day is perfectly healthy, Im not sure how he wakesat night, but I essimated a 40-50 ounces a day so YES you are over feeding. You could put less in the bottle, and a slower teat if you can, if you already are you could try a different brand hes young enough to switch!
Hungry baby milk doesnt work anyway, I put my baby on it for 5 days (till it ran out) and I found she ate MORE! She was on 180ml every 4 hours, then she was on 210 every 3,.. I dont know why but it didnt fill her up. I hope this helps.
