    Any other moms experiencing this?

    Do you think he is eating to soothe himself to go to sleep? Have you tried to feed him right when he wakes up?

    What type of nipple are you using? Have you tried different nipples?

    This chart, Bottle Feeding - What is Expected , has amounts suggested for each age. Check it out to see if his schedules and amounts are falling into the average.
