at that age milk still needs to be her main source of food as that is where she will get all her nutrients and vitamins from.



What i would suggest is to limit the amount of food you are giving her and only offer it for breakfast and lunch, make sure you always offer her, her milk first before food.



since my son was 5 months he has had 4 bottle through the day 7am, 11am, 3pm and 6:30pm he had breakfast 1 hour after his bottle and same with lunch, when he was 6 months old i added in the dinner which i give him at 5pm, so thats the only meal he will have before his bottle.



Hope this helps! good luck =))
