But he is still gaining weight. Average is not every baby. Just because the average 4 1/2 month old should be drinking a certain amount doesn't mean YOUR 4 1/2 year old should. Every child is different. Gaining weight, happy and healthy is what you should be looking for.

He is taking less feed than what an average 41/2 month old should be taking. He has only 20 ounce of formula everyday. So his weight Gain is also very slow.

How much less? Are you basing this on how much he was having last week? or how much the average baby "should" be having? Is it possible he has just been through a growth spurt and is now slowing down a little? How long has he been doing this? As long as he is not losing weight, and is gaining a little, this shouldn't be a problem. But we really need more information to give you any sort of real answer.
