is she finishinh her bottles?
i was always told to make sure you had an oz extra than what shed normally have.
so say she has 4oz per feed always offer her5!
that way if there was some left in the bottle, younwere sure she was full plus wen she started finshing that oz, u knew it was time to offer her more.

Alice is on 7oz but she's draining them now so I'm going to think about weaning her soon. I spoke to the HV around the same age as your LO Gem and she said they should be on 30 oz a day. For me I think that was 6oz every 4 hours but some days she was having slightly less than 30oz and sometimes a bit more. Alice sleeps through though so maybe that's why she was taking bigger bottles. 3/4oz seems quite low to me BUT as long as she's gaining weight and healthy it's fine. They used to tell me that Adam wasn't taking enough on his feeds and they had me so worried even though I told them he was settled on what he was on but then when he got weighed he was always fine.
