My son is 1 year old. He has three main meals like us. But he is not drinking a lot formula. He only takes about 10oz a day. That is 4 times a day. It means he only drinks 2 and a half oz each time. How can I get him drink more. Plus he eats about 120ml every meal 3 times a day. That's not a lot either.

What has his doctor said about him drinking regular milk? Maybe he does not like the taste of formula anymore? What kinds of foods does he like to eat when he does eat? Watch and observe his behavior as well when he eats. Usually when a child does not eat much that does not mean there is anything wrong with them, they just are not big eaters. When they get hungry they will eat. Once you figure out his likes and dislikes, you might be able to better prepare something to get him to eat more so.

If you feel he needs more formula than food, start cutting back on the food. he will not starve himself though. Some are just not great eaters. As long as they are a healthy weight that matches there size, and you are offering them good food to eat, it really does not matter.

Thanks Evelyn. He is on lactose free milk. Doctors said he is doing ok. But I am worried he is too tiny. He weights 8.5kg and height 74cm.
