What's your LO's feeding pattern at the moment?
O tends to take between 4-5oz every four hours. If he has a longer sleep I let him and he has his bottle on waking.

7 weeks old here and I mix feed, bf and bottles, but his bottles are either 5 or 6oz but he is finishing the 5oz ones occasionally so need to up them all to 6. He only gets two bottles on average a day though. Not long between feeds though, anything from 30 mins to 2 1/2 hours unless he naps when in the pram but naps in the house are few and far between.

Er, every 1-1.5 hours ATM (sob!) although people have been saying this will change soon - growth spurt, heat plus he has reflux, and today, at 7 weeks exactly, he has had a 3 hour nap so therefore big gap and I'm hoping this is a turning point! He's also not as frequent at night so am lucky there, occasionally he wakes hourly but it's reflux troubling him rather than hunger, otherwise it's every 3-4 hours with an occasional longer or shorter stretch. Basically, I have no idea what to expect day to day!
Is everyone's baby affected by the heat?

For the last few days its been 6 feeds a day of 5 oz...can be from 2 hours to four in the afternoon.. Night times we get a seven or even eight hour stretch... Keep thinking its a one off!
