I am confused about how much formula my 7 month old should have per day. I just stopped breastfeeding. The formula tin says 2-3 bottles of about 230 ml per day, but websites say that solids at this point are still minimal and he should get most of his nutrition from milk, meaning about 900 ml per day.
I don't want to overfeed him, he is already big for his age. He eats quite well on solids.
At 7mnths LO had dropped his lunch bottle as he was eating well he dropped it himself, I offered him food and then topped him up with the bottle he just started taking less and less. Hes still on 3 8ozs bottles but he rarely drinks it all. He drinks most of am bottle and bedtime
My little boy has been on 7oz bottles every 4-5 hours for about 4 months now (in the last 2 months he has dropped his late night/early hours bottles) i normally follow his lead. Try making a bottle of 6ozs and gauge if he wants more/less or exact amount over a few days your son will let you know if he's had enough
