    We've been exactly this since 4 months (now 5 & half months).

    thanks everyone for your insight. Sounds like my girl is fine. She has plenty of wet nappies, I guess I am trying to save formula being wasted. As she ranges from 80-200 some times. Usually the small feeds are her night feed at about 9pm and her one first thing in the morning at 6:00. I figure if she weren't getting enough throughout the day she would wake overnight she is sleeping from 9-10 through till 6-7. She is gaining weight maybe a little slower than they would like but she is long and given she was just under 2.5 at birth and is now 5.5 and has grown 13cm in length I think she is doing fine. Thanks for all the different scenarios.

He ended up having Verbal Dyspraxia and low tone so it would have been incredibly hard for him to get any milk out of the bottles with how tight we'd done them up. Instant started drinking more after we did those things :-)

    My baby boy is 16 weeks old and weighs 7.3kg - he has 7 bottles a day - he takes around 150 mls per feed - he sleeps for 12 hrs a night so usually feeds every 1.5 - 2 hrs during the day.

    My DD is almost six months now, but at four months she was having 150 - 180 ml every three hours through the day and one or two 120ml bottles overnight. Occasionally she might've taken the full 180 mls but very rare.
