    Hi all, Bethanie currently has 210ml of milk in the morning, 150ml in the afternoon and 180ml before bed, this is 540mls per day - I got this rough guide from a baby meal plan book which has always fit Bethanie really well (don't like to live from a book though, so don't use it anymore).

    She loves her food but doesn't have too much or snack between feeds. The past few days I notice shes leaving a fair bit of her milk after each feed (anything from 20-40ml). I read that babies need at least 500-800ml of milk until the age of 1, so im a little worried shes cutting back too quickly?

    Any advice?

    Thanks :):dohh:

    I would say she is getting plenty hun and as long as they get at least a pint a day then its all good

    BF??

    You can use the follow on milk from 6 months onwards I think, Bethanie has the SMA progress.
