Not to mention on all tins in Australia not only do they have the proportions and servings there is a warning NOT to exceed the amount directed on the tin as it can be harmful to your baby .

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

My kids were drinking from 24-32 oz. daily at about that age. So 3-4 8 oz bottles (which should mean he isn't waking in the middle of the night for a feeding :-)))

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.
