He should be getting 2.5 floz per pound in weight of formula in 24 hours.

If you work it out like that, do the quantities sound about right? smile

Ds1 had 5oz of hungry baby milk at 4 weeks. He was drinking 7oz of normal strength every two/four hours. Day and night. He grew really quickly. He was in one size of clothes for two weeks. He's been 6'2 since he was just 14. He's 14 and a half and is still growing.
I don't think there's a set max amount. Ds2 drank less.

5oz every four hours day and night.

He started solids at 3months. It was different guidelines then, but milk wasn't enough for him as he was huge. Not overly fat, but he put on a lb a week. He was the size of a nine month baby at four months.
