    Our pedi said to increase according to her needs. She is almost 3 weeks old and typically takes 3-4 ounces every 3-4 hours. When she starts taking 4 ounces consistently I will add an ounce. If she is clearly hungry, why not give her what she needs? I think it is better to go on what she is telling you as opposed to some generic guideline. JMO though

    Feed on demand, even if she wants more than 4. Right around 4 weeks, we upped my DS to 5 oz at a time.
