Wow in not sure that my LO isn't actually eating to much looking at these replies, he has two meals a day although we are doing blw so he may not get quite as much as puréed but he's also still having 5 bottles a day at 7oz each time.

My Lo is 7 months, shes pretty big for her age though, she is 24lbs. I read they still have to have 500-600ml of milk per day so about 21oz.

My DD has 8oz bottle when she wakes up

Breakfast

Lunch (another 5oz bottle after lunch)

Dinner

8oz Bedtime bottle (but shes recently started only drinking about 6oz)

My baby is 11 months old, and I just took away the fourth bottle because he was more hungry for food rather than the bottle. My baby now gets an 8 oz bottle at 8 am, 3pm, 8pm. At 7 months old, he had an 8 oz bottle at 8am, 12pm, 5pm and 8:30pm. He is quiet a chunky baby and eats three well-established meals per day as well as an afternoon snack. He's 27 pounds and just perfect and happy! I always follow my babies' leads when it comes to this. Most of my babies were happier with food and didn't want the bottles at around a year old, so I know my baby will be off the bottles soon enough. I think you're right to question this person. Your 7-month-old still needs their nutrition from bottles.

I would ignore that advice. If he's drinking it, he needs it. But at 7 months, he'll just be tasting food still rather than getting much in the way of nutrition and calories from it, so the bulk should still come from milk.

At that age, mine had probably 6 bottles still, maybe about 260 ml each, give or take, sometimes more sometimes less. She didn't drop to 3 bottles a day until 11/12 months and not to 2 until maybe 13/14 months. 3 bottles a day probably isn't often enough for most 7 month olds unless they are eating lots of solids and taking in plenty of fluids in other forms.

We didn't drop any bottles until my daughter stopped wanting them (not seeming hungry, refusing them totally, or being interested more in solids at that time, for example, a snack between meals rather than milk). We never actively dropped them when she was drinking them happily.

That's what I did with my first he was never as bothered about milk as Henry is so he dropped to 3 bottles pretty much at just over 6 months. Henry loves his milk but stopped drinking his mid morning bottle and just messed with it so I tried leaving it out and he was fine. I always go with if he wants it and drinks it all he must need it. He is a big boy and doesn't eat a huge amount of solids, he isn't putting on to much weight and is following the 75th centile line he has been on since birth so I'm just going to follow my mother's instinct like I did with william
