I'm curious as to approximately how much formula are 8 month olds supposed to be drinking with 3 small solid meals a day?

I know theres a math formula on how to work it out but can't remember... it has to with the babies weight and multipling something?? lol Does anyone know?

Thanks a million.... Ky x

my son takes his bottle only a couple of times a day. I started putting it in his sippy and offering it at meal times but i think as long as he has well rounded meals its not a big deal. my daughter gave up on her bottle early too. once they have that food they dont want that yucky formula! LoL

My son has 4 bottles a day 7 oz each...and three meals a day....i found this chart for feedings and from birth to a year old a baby is supposed to get 20-32 oz of milk a day....but as he or she gets older you just change the amount of bottles you give and amount of milk in each bottle....in the beginning it's about 5 or 6 bottles a day with 4 or 5 oz in each and then around 7 months you cut back to 3 or 4 bottles a day with 7 to 8 oz......I got this chart from very good source too...hope it helps....
