    Harry routine is roughly like this
    8 ish 7oz milk
    9 ish porridge
    1/2 ish 7oz milk
    5 or 6 7oz milk
    6 ish dinner
    10 7oz milk

    im thinking this is way too much milk but he wants it even after i feed him solids (he always eats it all) he still cries for his bottle. thanks

    It looks ok, you could always substitute the lunch time milk for an actual lunch of finger foods. Or if your concerned you could reduce the oz of milk you give him at certain feeds. If he is eating it all though and showing signs of hunger i think your doing well.

    I really don't think it's too much for his age at all, sounds good and if he's growing and content that's what matters.

    It's definitely not too much milk, my baby is a similar age and drinks that, and 7oz more if she takes her dreamfeed. She doesn't eat much solid food though. Why don't you introduce a lunch of finger foods, it may not cause him to drop milk any time soon but it's prob a good idea?
