    HB baby formula doesnt actually have any extra calories in it. Its only thicker and harder to digest.

    Thats not a massive amount of milk if hes only have 5 bottles a day

    Id stick with what your doing. As above HB has no more calories in it and can cause constipation. Thats not a huge amount of milk.

    also he could end up only having 4 bottles . So would be less calories
