I was just wondering how many oz's and how often your 12 wk olds are taking?
O is currently draining 4 bottles of 6oz! But 7oz seems to much for sinch a tiny tummy!!

M has 2 bottles a day and we battle to get 4oz into her. She's 13 weeks and 11lb 7oz so a bit of a titch. To be fair neither if the other 2 took more than 5oz at once even when fully ff

To add, if he's draining them then I'd up the volume - he's obv putting it somewhere, could be temporary fir his 12 wk gs

J was downing more than 7oz each feed at 12 weeks old. He was a chunky bum though (9lb 9oz at birth, with a VERY healthy appetite)

My h is doing 6oz and having 6 feeds in 24 hours. He is nearly 11 weeks...

Maybe not as unusual as I thought then? I have made up 8oz today...bit of a jump but he needs to have 225ml at least to put two sachets of Gaviscon in. He is so tiny still, last time we had him weighed he was still under 10lb....so maybe he is playing catch up!

Munchkin I have to make up 225ml too for my gaviscon....is that working for you now?

W has been taking 6oz for a couple of weeks and he's just turned 11wks. He gets one 7oz first thing in the morning as usually he's gone between 9 and 12 hours without a feed.

F has been taking 6oz bottles for a few weeks now. Some of them he has been draining so I have been making up 7oz bottles for the afternoon and evening feeds but he still gets up for 6oz around 2 or 3 in the morning.

Heidi is 10 weeks. I make her bottles to 5oz. Sometimes it all goes. Others she only drinks 3/4.
Sorry, are you bfing too? Only 4 bottles all day? H has a bottle every three hours!

E is mix fed (we are currently transitioning to full bottle feeding), she is still only little (15 weeks and 10lb7oz) but would normally take upto 5oz in a bottle feed. However this week it has been anywhere from 6oz to 8oz at each feed - I think we are on a growth spurt!!
