How Many Ounces?

My twins are going to be 7 weeks old on Wed. They are putting away 5 ounces each feeding. I thought this seemed like a lot. My older child didn't eat 5 ounces until later on....

Now DD is acting like she can't make it until her next feeding. Is this a growth spurt? SHould I increase the ounces? 6 ounces, even 5/5, seems like A LOT.

They weigh 11 pounds 6 ounces, and 10 pounds, 3 ounces.

    FWIW, my almost 5 week olds have been eating between 4-5 ounces for a little over a week.

    I think at 7 weeks mine were barely eating 3 oz. Right now @ 4 months DD usually eats no more than 5 and DS can eat as much as 6... But honestly, all babies are different!
