How much milk should babies drink a day?

It depends on how old your baby is.
Newborns up to 6 months should be getting only breastmilk or formula whenever the baby is hungry (usually every 2-4 hours). Breastfed infants usually take smaller, more frequent feedings than formula-fed infants. They will let you know when they feel hungry, and as they grow they will need more. After 6 months, you can introduce solid foods, but most of their nutrition should still be from breastmilk or formula. After 1 year, they usually slow down eating, and may become more picky about what they eat. If they haven't already settled into regular meal times by 1 year, then that's the time to get them into a routine.
