Is 36-38oz of formula in 24 hours way too much for a 7 week old baby?

In brief: Formula

Your child should have 24-30 ounces of milk over 24 hours

In brief: Yes!

Twenty four ounces in twenty four hours would be the approximate maximum an infant of this age should want or need.
Infants often over eat as a response to untreated acid reflux

In brief: Possibly

You never mention how big your baby is.
You could get to 36 ounces by feeding 4.5 ounces every 3 hours which is definitely on the high side of what I usually see.
