If you are breast feeding you should be feeding your newborn every 2-3 hours. It is hard to say how many ounces your infant is getting, but just watch for the signs of sucking and swallowing (mouth movement, gulping, neck movement, etc...).

When formula feeding, normally start around 1-2 ounces per feeding every 2-3 hours. Don't ever force your baby to take more. If your baby turns his/her head away, it means he/she is done.
