Erratic bottle feeding in newborns

My lo is 23 days old, her feeds range from 1.5hr apart to 3.5 hrs apart and anything from 2oz to 5oz, when can I expect things to settle down????
I may be worrying about nothing but concerned she will never learn how much she needs to satisfy her and will always 'graze'
Thanks x

Hi there, my little one was a snacker when younger, and would never take more than a few oz at a time. Timings were all over the show too. I got stressed about it, worrying that she wasn't settled ... or I wasn't comforting her into some sort of routine, and even went to the doctor who looked at me like this hmm

She is now almost five months and no longer a grazer. She has her milk at regular intervals (more or less) and is a very satisfied little feeder smile
