Daughters feeding

Hello moms.
I need some advice.
My daughter is 3months old. She’s been on cereal since she was 2months old. She was constantly hungry, and not getting enough. Since she was 2months old she’s been on 5 oz. with cereal. Eating every 1-2 hours.
She’s 3months old now eating from 5oz we just moved her up to 6oz with cereal, but she’s still very hungry after a bottle. She still wants to eat every 1-2 hours. Is there anything I can do so she’s not always hungry? She’s always hungry. She does sleep through the night. So she gets a big bottle when she wakes up in morning. I just don’t know what to do. I don’t wanna over feed her, but I wanna make sure she’s full.

    Hello. My baby is now 9 months old and she’s been a big eater from day 1. The doctor said they can over eat so don’t just feed them every time they’re “hungry.” You can know if you’re over feeding them by observing them after feedings. Such as if she tends to throw up the food or holds it in later. If she holds it in you can use that as a tester on adding a little more. Another thing to keep in mind, she may not be hungry and maybe enjoys the suckling motion. Does she use a pacifier? It may help.
