Bottle feeding newborn - advice!!

My ds is 10 days old and due to issues with breastfeeding - he has been exclusively bottle fed since day 2.
To cut a long story short he is taking 4 oz each feed and is looking for his feeds between every 2 to 4 hours. Is this normal or is he eating too much?
He winds halfway through and at the end of each feed and he is not sick in between, other than normal posseting.
It's almost like he needs to be put up an oz to 5 oz but I'm worried that's too much!!
Can anyone put my mind at rest??

Feeding every 2-4 hours is normal range when they're so little. Tough going, but normal.

11 days here and mine is eating 4oz every 2-3 hours. I don't know where he's putting it!
