Message Title: ounces to give bottle baby

I was wondering if anyone out there could tell me if I am on the right track. My bottle baby is going to be 20 days old tomorrow. I feed him every 5 hours right now - even through the night. I have been giving him 32 ounces per feeding and he gets fresh water and grasses to nibble on (sure likes clover tops). Anyway he is averaging about 128 ounces plus a day. He weighs 63 lbs. and is gaining at least a pound a day. His legs seem kind of shaky sometimes. He gets exercise daily. Oh yeah, one more question: Do those of you who bottle feed or have bottle fed warm up the milk until weaning or can the little guy have cold milk? I don't want him to get sick or anything. Thanks again for all your help!
