If your baby is hungry, feed them, their intake can vary, growth spurts or even a bug can make them eat more for a bit. Your baby does not eat for comfort like we adults sometimes do, unless like i said they have a liitle bug and dont feel well. Like jennifer and emma said, it would be helpful to know if your talking about formula or whole milk and how old your baby is

If you mean liquid formula in a can, it's much cheaper to buy the powdered formula and mix it yourself. It's still expensive, but the baby needs to eat.

If she's drinking a lot, spewing then wanting more you could burp her every 30mL or so and she might drink less and there might be less wasted formula? But yeah we need more info on this one.

If it's formula don't skimp, your baby is obviously hungry. If your baby is older than 6 months then you could try some solids.

When my son was a baby I used to go through 1 1/2 large tins of formula a week.

Babies are expensive, if you are finding formula costs allot maybe try changing brands, just be sure that the cheaper stuff contains the right nutrients.

How old is your baby? Most babies just feed when they're hungry I doubt they're drinking "too much" milk.

Do you mean formula? or Whole milk? If it is formula let your baby drink what they want it is important they have that for the 1st year. If it is whole milk I give my daughter a sippy cup with each meal and juice and water in between. Don't be cheap when it comes to nutrition with your children they need the proper nutrition in order for their brain to grow and develop
