Just curious, as my 8 month old son still has 4 bottles a day and solids 3 times a day. He's average for his weight. He doesnt eat a whole lot of solid foods, but lot of other babies i know at this age have 2-3 bottles a day.



What is everyone elses bubs doing? How many bottles a day does your 8 month old drink?

How many bottles should an 8 month old have?

My 8 month old has 5 bottles a day. Three of those times I mix a 6 oz bottle. The other two times I mix a 5 oz bottle and also feed him 3.5oz pack of Gerber stage 2 and 2 tablespoons of mixed grain cereal.

Every baby is different. As long as they are growing and not demanding more.. It's enough. When I was in the hospital after having my son, he had to be woken up every 4 hours cuz he wasn't hungry on his own. When we got home I tried to feed him every 2-3 hours and he just wasnt that into it. From the time he was born he was eating every 4 hours.. Sometimes every 6 and by 2 weeks old he was sleeping thru the night. He was a content baby. My daughter on the other hand wanted to eat every 2-3 hours and would let ya know. Lol. My point is, from the beginning my kids both required different amounts of milk.. And when we started foods, my son took longer to get up to 3 meals a day where as my daughter wanted the meals and by the time she was 7-8 months old she had 3 meals a day and probably 3-4 bottles a day. My son was probably 9-10 months before he was at 3 meals a day, and he still got 5-6 bottles a day. It's supply and demand. If it's not enough they will let you know.

my daughter is now 13 months but at 8 months she was having 4x 200ml bottles and 3 meals a day. Now she eats 2 weet-bix for breakfast, a yoghurt and what ever we have for tea, she eats a lot! she also has 3x250ml bottles now. Oh and I should mention she is very petite lol. I think it has something to do with hollow legs

my nine month old still has up to 5 bottles a day and only one or two solid meals he is average weight for his age so I am not too concerned as he is my fourth baby
