Is she fussy between feeds? My daughter was like that and it turns out it was comfort feeding due to silent reflux. Once she was on nutramigen is was 4 ounces every 3 hours or so.

Here's a great post about whether or not it's an issue: Quick and Dirty Guide to Recognizing Allergies or Intolerances

Re: How much does your child eat?

DS is 2 months and eats 3 to 4 oz every 3 to 4 hrs. There has been a couple of times where he'll eat 5 oz, but never more than that yet. At night it's a completely different story. He'll sleep at least 4 hours, a couple of times 7! And his eating habits are never the same. One night he'll eat an oz and a half, others 4.. I go off of his cues more than anything at night..

My DD eats 8 to 9 oz every 4 hours. She is 9 months old. When she was 4 months she ate 4 oz every 2 to 3 hours.
