How much formula at 7 months.


I had an appt for Henry with a dietician today to discuss him transitioning from nutramigen back to normal formula. Anyway she wanted to know what he eats/drinks in a typical day.

She listed down everything he has and said I'm giving him to much milk and I she wants me to drop one of his bottles. He has 3 8oz bottles a day and has only recently dropped the 4th.

She said to stop giving him his mid afternoon bottle and just give him one morning and night. This doesn't seem right to me and I think he still needs that extra bottle for a while yet.

I'm not going to drop that bottle since he doesn't eat massive amounts and I know he needs the nutrition from his milk, I'm just curious what other babies the same age are having and if anyone agrees with the dietician.

We've only just started weaning our lb this week so he's still basically purely ff.

He has around 23-26 ozs a day. He's am iugr preemie though and our dietician said to hold off on solids if he wasnt ready. No need to start before 9 months

My eldest daughter is 20 months and she still has three bottles of milk a day and is fully weaned on food and eats a vast amount! She has a morning, after her nap and before bed bottle. She's on cows milk and has been since she was 1. I know both of my eldest two children at 7 months were still on 4 bottles a day as we had only begun to wean at 6 months and I did BLW so they weren't getting a lot to eat really it was more exploring at that age.

My oldest was the same could have dairy in food from pretty much day 1 of weaning with little discomfort. But Henry was a much milder intolerance and he's having cows milk on his breakfast and a lot of dairy products throughout the day with no issue so we wanted to try him and see how he gets on

I think every baby has different needs, our seven month old has 5-7 6oz bottles a day and has two meals a day plus a snack.

I was so in shock when she said I was giving him far to much milk. I know other babies his age have a lot more

Mine had three bottles a day till 11. Months and only stopped due to being too nosy at the nursery. We were at 2 (4oz) bottles till nearly 2 but these were for comfort really. She was a great eater from day one too
