a) one 'sitting'

b) one 24hr period??

c) do they still 'snack' like BF babies do - as DS3 does that and it drives me bananas

I cant remember exact amounts but he fed every 2.5 to 3 hours so had about 8 bottles in 24 hours maybe 4oz or something in each (god I cant remember and hes only 9 months old!!)

at 6 weeks I think she was taking about 5oz per feed. She was feeding every 3 - 4 hours, or 6 feeds in every 24 hour period.

She did snack a bit at first, but I tried to follow a vague routine with her feeding and that definitely helped. FF babies still get hungry in the evenings though, and might need to feed more frequently then.
