How much formula/breastmilk does your lil one take now and is he/she eating babyfood and how many times a day?

My daughter doesn't drink much formula anymore. I give her baby food, then half an hour or so later, I give her a bottle of formula. It seems as if I don't give it as much anymore.

I forgot to say Kai doesnt eat baby jars though he eats anything we as a family have, homemade meals & finger foods, peeled grapes, cocktail sauages, wotsits, sauage rolls, apple, cheese bites as he doesnt like jar foods as nothing to chew,

Which is why maybe he has cut down on his milk also as he full & contented lol

If a baby is getting a balanced nutritional diet & eats well they should then be cutting down on milk,

My hv told me to only give Kai 9 months 3 5oz bottles a day as that is all he needs as he eats so well,

Isabella is 9 months old and only has 3 bottles a day now but I give it to her an hour before breakfast and lunch and about an hour and a half after dinner just before she goes to bed - most days I split the before lunch bottle up giving her half a feed an hour before lunch then after her sleep I give her the other half (a new batch just with half the amount) to help her last the distance and because she is going off her milk too. Each bottle has the recommended amount in it for her age. I hope this helps.

My son is 6 months old, is it normal for him to drink only 130ml 7 times a day? And everytime he doesnt finish his milk, taking at least an hr to finish the whole bottle, else, will leave 20 ml untouched. I am worried he doesnt get enough to drink. He weighs about 7.5 kg now

As far as i know and from what my dr says the baby should be eating just as much formula as she was before you started the food. My son is 9 months old and only 17 pounds and he nurses as often as he did before solids and he eats solids three times a day and get cheerios or gerber puffs sometimes for snack!

they should be having at least 15oz of formula around this age!

but dont worry if they are not just feed them plenty of dairy products .. im not worried because my son absolutely loves yogurts so i know he's still getting calcium. hope that helps.

and he has 3 meals a day breakfast,lunch with a pudding and finger food and tea (i've started giving him the same as us at tea time as he's started refusing mashed food) and a pudding.

My baby has food 3 times a day and nurses about 4 times. She doesn't seem to be getting as much milk though. I'm not sure how much they should be having at this age...
