Sometimes he would rather drink than eat food. I'm not sure how much formula to give an 11 month old.

Same as the others, Also don't worry. My (healthy) two year old has cont. this habit and would rather drink his meals if I let him. You'll laugh when I say this but just give it time and be persistent with the food.

I was told an 11 month old should drink about 32 ounces as well. I was also told about 4 ounces of juice but you should mix it half half with water because juice is very sweet.

When I asked how much formula an 11 month old should drink I was told approximately 32 ounces a day and no more than 6 ounces of juice in a day. At this time, I also was mixing part whole milk and formula just to start the transition to whole milk. That fills them up a little more and they tend to drink less. Also if they drink out of a cup or sippy cup it tends to be less. (that my experience) But I am always offering the cup to my son in case he is thirsty.
