How many oz are your babies drinking a day now that they are on solids?

My son is 7.5 months and all the bottles are different depending on the time.
4-6 am is 6oz
10 am is 4oz
12 is 2oz with cereal
3-4 is 4 oz
5:30-6:30 is 2oz with veggie and cereal
12-1 am 8oz
34oz in 24hrs, but he doesn't always finish all leaving some here and there.

My son is all over the place with drinking milk. I am constantly adding up the ounces because I don;t feel he drinks enough. Even prior to food he did this so we added the food to ensure he was getting some nutrition.
He bf's for a few minutes in the morning and then eats 1-2oz of rice/fruit combo. He'll then have about 2-3 oz of breast milk or formula before noon. For lunch he eats 2oz of veggies and 4-6 oz milk. In afternoon another 5-7 oz of milk. IN late afternoon he has another 2-3 oz of milk then at dinnertime he eats 2oz of veggies. About 8pm or so he has abotu 4oz of milk before bedtime. Throughout the night he wakes up and bf's for about 10 minutes 1x. ALl in all he only drinks about 16-20oz in a 24 hr period. He is gainging weight though.

my son is having 3 jars of stage 2 food everyday following a 4 ounce bottle after his food and a 8 ounce bottle at bed time with no solid food before that...so all together about 20 ounces a day but most the time he only drinks 3 ounces when having his solid food

I work 4 days a week (10 hour days! YUCK!), so on work days, my daughter nurses at 6:30 am, 4 tablespoons of fruit at 8:30am, nurses again at 9. She eats again at 11-11:30, usually 4-5 tablespoons of vegetables (2-3 tablespoons of homemade rice cereal when she is in the mood) and a 3 ounce bottle (usually formula seeing I cannot pump enough milk while at work). She eats again around 3:00 pm, this time only a 4 ounce bottle. Next feeding is at 6:00, 3-4 tablespoons of a vegetable and a 3 ounce bottle. I am home by 8:30 and she nurses on demand. When I am home, she nurses on demand all day and gets fruits, vegetables, and rice cereal at least 4 times a day.

My baby boy breastfeeds in the early morning, has 4oz formula for breakfast along with fruit and cereal, lunch is only veggies and 5 oz milk, dinner is 4 oz milk along with cereal, little yogurt and fruit, and before bed he breastfeeds again.

my daughter still only drinks 4 oz of formula...her pediatrician says that it's ok for her to drink anywhere from 4 to 6 oz, but when i try to increase the amount to 6oz she only drinks 3oz....umm, it really all just depends on how much solid food your child gets, along with how much they are willing to drink...
