how many ounces of formula should an eight month old be drinking a day?

during hot times like this allow baby to drink if they want to drink, if you are worried that you might be giving too much milk, alternate with some weak juice as well as water. otherwise the general rule below is pretty right in its calculations

I found this rule of thumb on dr.greens website...
Another way to express this rule of thumb is that the average baby takes 2 or 3 ounces of formula each day for every pound of body weight, up to a maximum of 32 ounces. A newborn weighing 7 lbs. will take an average of 14-21 ounces of formula in a day. A 4-month-old weighing 14 pounds needs 28-32 ounces.
