My 4 month old dd is having 7 ounces every 4 hours - she doesn't seem to get hungry any quicker. But when she has finished the feed she seems a bit angry. I am not sure whether people give more than 7 ounces per feed? Or should I just feed her 7 every 3 hours instead? She sleeps all night 7-7. Sorry to seem a bit thick but I didn't FF my other babies so it's relatively new smile

Any advice?

Offer her 8 and see if she finishes it or if she just needs a good burping.

My Ds get grumpy too so I give him a dummy to suck on and then he is content.

I'd offer 8oz and see if she wants a little bit more, but stick to the 4-hourly schedule if that seems to be working for her (and you).
