6 months old - how many bottles/ounces?


Well, I was wondering how many bottles per day, and how many oz/bottle your LOs are/were having at 6 months old.

Colton still eats quite often; having a bottle every 3-4 hours. However, here recently I have noticed he isn't crying for his bottle after the usual 3 hours. He will sometimes even have his bottle (1 hour later his food) and then go another 3 hours, sometimes even 4 before I finally just feed him. I dont want him to starve.
When I give him the bottle he will drink it, he just doesn't cry for it.. or tell me in any way "Okay, I'm hungry now!"
I was wondering if I should try and cut out a bottle or two and just see if he will take more ounces per bottle. Currently he is having 6oz, sometimes he drinks it all.. sometimes not.

Katie was on 4 at that age and 7-8oz bottles.

I think spacing it out to 4 hours will probably make him take more at each feed so you then could drop a milk feed. How many bottles is he having hun?

He usually has around 6 bottles.
The only problem I think will arise, is that he doesnt always eat his whole bottle. Maybe if I wait longer inbetween he will eat the whole thing, instead of just feeding him because it's "about that time".
