My 11 month old is drinking whole milk because of relux and is drinking about two to three 6-8 ounce a day. Usually one in the morning and one at night and occasionally one before naptime. He eats normal food now and is doing great!

My daughter only drinks out of sippy cup now, and has been for over a month! I'm so excited about that :) She also only drinks 3 (occasionally a fourth if she goes to bed late) 6 oz sippy cups a day. Her pediatrician (who is terrific and we absolutely love her) knows what she eats and drinks and approves. She eats three healthy meals a day, mostly what we eat instead of jarred food. Our doctor has even made suggestions on how to get more protein in her diet. She sleeps through the night and never wakes to be fed.

My 10 month old nurses in the am before work, then has some breakfast (cereal, eggs etc..) , then has an 8 oz bottle of breast milk around 10 am. Lunch around 11:30 (table food), another bottle around 2, nursed at 5, table food at 6:30. So all in total 2 nursings, and two bottles. Sometimes I will nurse him a little bit more before he goes to bed.

Thanks to whomever posted the article..I was worrying about Zander because he is pretty much not into the formula anymore. It's a struggle to get him to take 3-4 8oz. bottles/cups a day anymore. I feel alot better now knowing that he is normal! At least now he is..when he was smaller he took 6-8 10oz. bottles a day. I think he has a really high metabolism..lolol

i have twins.. they have one about an hour after breakfast before their nap. one at about 3 pm. one after dinner at about 7.. and they usually wake up at least once at night for a diaper change and a bottle. so about 4 or 5 six oz bottles in a 24 hour period.

my son drinks 2-3 7oz bottles a day. one in the morning, sometimes one in the afternoon and one before bed time. this is on top of regular drinks of water, breakfast, lunch and dinner and a snack mid afternoon :)

My daughter is 10 1/2 months old. She has a 6oz bottle around 6am. Breakfast is cereal and a 4oz bottle, lunch is fruit and a 4oz bottle and dinner is a stage 3 jar of food, then I give her the last 4oz bottle before bed.

My son will wake and eat cereal with a fruit plus 6+ oz of formula in the morning. While with the sitter while I'm at work, he will eat 2 meals, both with a Gerber stage 2 veggie and 6+ oz of formula. We get home, and he will have an 8oz bottle of formula before bedtime, sometimes with a little cereal. He has been sleeping through the night since 2 months old. We make sure to have the 5-6 servings of fruit/veggies + 20-25oz of formula per day. This is according to some of the websites that provide feeding guidelines for babies.

My daughter who is just 10 month has a 210ml bottle in the morning, if she doesnt finish it i use it to make her museli, then she has half of her 210ml bottle at 11am...i refridgerate it and give the other half to her at 3pm when sh e has her 2nd nap. then she has a 240ml bottle at 6:30pm for bed. She also has a sippy cup with probably 120ml water with meals and has 3 meals a day, normal food mashed. She is starting to look like she will drop nthe day time bottle as doesnt show much interest, im not 100% sure what the right amount is for her age but think min 2 covers her nutritional needs...

I give my daughter a bottle in the morning when she wakes up, one at night before bed, and often one during the day. They are each about 8 oz, but the morning one is often less, and she may only drink 6 or 7 oz at night. SOme days she drinks only formula, but I try to give her baby foods during lunch and dinner, and only use the bottle as a filler or supliment.

My son has 1- 8oz bottle a day and he gets before bedtime. He gets oatmeal and a 6oz cup of formula at breakfast, a snack around 10a.m. banana and 4oz cup of juice, lunch is 1 jar of 3rd food and 1/2 jar of 2nd food and 6oz cup of formula, snack around 3pm 6oz cup of formula and 1/2 cup of gerber puffs or fruit, for dinner he gets a 1/2 cup veggie ( like green beans or carrots that he can pick up and feed himself) and a jar of 2nd food and 6oz 4oz cup of formula, then at bedtime around 8:30-9:00 he gets a 8oz bottle. Hope this helps. This feeding schedule was also approved by his dr.

Just switched from 3 bottles of 6-8 oz a day, to just one bottle at night before bed. My little girl is having solid food snacks between meals, working towards eliminating the bottle completely by 1 year. It's hard when she will take anything I will give her. She's not guiding me so much - she just likes to eat and drink!

My baby is almost 10 months and has 2-3 6oz (one in the A.M. and one before bed and depending on how she eats another in the afternoon) bottles a day, plus breakfast, lunch, a snack, and supper. She is very independent and loves to feed herself, she also has 2-3 sippy cups throughout the day.

2-3 bottles a day. 10-12 oz per day total. it's hard getting her to drink her bottle and don't know why. she pushes it away constantly! she would rather eat solids all day. we're also trying the sippy cup thing, but she's never been a drinker. i feel a lot better w/ her totals after reading some posts.

hey there. My little girl is nearly 10 months and is rapidly going off her bottle, a few weeks ago she was happily taking 6oz in the morning and evening and 3/4oz on a afternoon, but this last couple of weeks 3/4oz on a morning and the same on an evening has been the most she ll take. I ve noticed people have mentioned that this isn't enough and that formula/breast milk is a necessity til 12 months. I'm sure this is true in an ideal world, but some babies are not like this!!!! You cannot force a baby to take a bottle / milk. I ve spoken to my doctor and she said as long as she is eating and drinking well and putting on weight theres not 2 much 2 worry about. As well as her small bottles Izzy has cereal with milk for breakfast, fruit for a midmorning snack, a homecooked meal (chicken/fish/meat wivth veggies/potatoes, mostly as finger food), plus a yougart/fromage frais for lunch, fruit and breadstick/ricecake for afternoon snack, homeade soup & sandwich or pasta in homemade sauces and another milk based desert for tea. I try 2 give her as much dairy as I can in these meals 2 make up 4 the lack of milk.I offer her cooled boiled water at regular intervals in a sippy cup throughout the day aswell. Shes really independent in her eating habits and most of the time wil eat what we re eatng without the obvious added salt etc. I know my mums generation use to give babies cows milk alot early than recommended now and we did alright on it!!! I think every baby is individual and different and will take what they need :o)

two 8oz. bottles... morning and night. he eats table food and 3rd stage foods through out the day. Pediatrician says that that is an adequate amount. My son refuses to take a bottle any other time of the day

my son hardly drinks his milk so he get's about one bottle a day now because he waste it. his docotr says that's fine as long as he get 8-10 oz aday. he mostly eats table food but he stl get's baby food also.

My daughter has 4-5 8 oz bottles of milk a day. I'm trying to turn the afternoon bottle to water with a little fruit juice, because with the formula she can get constipated if she has too much. As far as foods go, she HATES baby food, but even though she doesn't have teeth she wants to munch down anything we're eating. So I make my own food for her and as long as they are finger foods so she can feed herself, she's happy.

my 10/ 1/2 month old has 150ml after breakfast, 150ml at about 3pm, 150ml at about 7pm and usually still wakes at about 10pm for another one. He has three meals a day also but doesnt eat alot compared to other babies I know - also he is 6 weeks prem so a little bit behind on things. apparently a 10-12 month old needs about 600ml a day - as another person has said in other posts. :)
