4 month sleep regression or growth spurt?

My 4 month old baby has started waking lots of times in the night. Her routine before this was :

6.30- 5oz
10.30- 5oz
4am ish- 5 oz
7am ish- 4-5 oz

Recently it's been more like this:

6.30- 6oz
9.15- 5oz
10.30pm- 3oz
2am- 4oz
5am- 5oz
6.30am- 3oz

There have only been 2 nights like this but I'm worried she's getting into bad habits. Does this look like the 4 month sleep regression? Or a growth spurt? She had over 1000ml milk yesterday- usually she has around 800ml. Help!

Could be a bit of both!
My DD is the same at the minute, up a lot during the night for feeds. It's been going on for almost 3 week now confused. She has put on almost 2lbs so def seems like a growth spurt!

Interesting- how old is she?

Mine is 5mo and is on almost 9oz every feed, is she draining the bottle each time?

Try a bottle with 8oz in and see how much she takes, she might just be still hungry after the bottle because of a growth spurt and drinking more will keep her happier for longer.
