I would Iike her to drink at least 4 through out the day but she gets full and stops, during the night she'll drink two but I know she should be having more , doctor says her weight is just fine but she seems really slim to me compared to other baBies her age, can anyone relate ?
And will she grow more once she's put on cows milk? I was told that really fills them out and fast... (believer past 12months for cowfrs milk unless doc says its ok, haven't asked...)

Just to make sure I understand correctly, she is having two 8oz bottles during the day and another two 8oz bottles at night?

If she is consuming 32oz of formula in a 24 hour period that's about 650 calories. If she's having solids three times a day she should be getting 900 to 1000 calories no problem. I'm sure she's fine.

You need to be prepared for growth and weight gain to slow down around now. Babies often slim down once they start crawling and walking. And after a year it's not unusual to go months without growing or gaining. Growth tends to happen in bursts and plateaus.
