Bottle sizes
January 17, 2013 at 4:56 AM
I am looking to get some larger size bottles since we are "growing" out of the 4 and 5oz bottles. I was wondering if the 8 or 9oz bottles are large enough or do I need to get the 11oz bottles? My baby is 2 months old.

    Omg, they actually make bottles so enormous??!! My kids never had bottles larger than the 5 ounce size, and those weren't filled full. But they were breastfed and only got bottles while I was at work. A baby's tummy isn't designed to hold more than a few ounces at a time if it doesn't get stretched.
    Good luck!

    Lol this minus the shock part haha. We had 8 oz bottles but my son never ate more than 4 oz at a time.

    I had no idea they even made bottles that big! My daughter only took a few oz at a time every 2-3 hours even at a year.

    Blake is almost 2 months and he is taking 4oz of formula every 3-4 hours.

    Really an 11oz bottle?!?!?!? I have never seen one of those. I ff my first and the most he ever ate was 6ozs and even then that wasn't until he was closer to being 1. My DS2 is 2 months and only takes 2 ozs every 2-3 hrs when I'm at work but I think that's because he prefers drinking from the tap.

    I would get the 8/9oz bottles, because by the time baby is ready for more than that he will likely be more than old enough to switch to a sippy!
