When I was breast feeding 6mo dd slept from 6-11/12 then fed at 2 and 4.

Now formula feeding she feeds 9, 12, 3 (and then often that is wake up time). In the daytime we can get her to drink 2-4oz every 4 hours. At night she takes 6-7oz per feed.

How can I get her to take more in the daytime? She clamps her mouth shut or chews the bottle.

Sounds like she's teething, have you tried her with any food yet or even boiled water. My 7mo is the same but she has some food now, they'll only eat or drink if they need and want to.
