    my little one eats 3 times a day and seems happy with food i think. however i've seen some people who give bigger tins than 120 or 128, the bigger jars.. he has the normal ones twice a day and powder in the morning. does anyone give their younger one food 4 times a day or the very big jars..at 6 months i dont know if im supposed to give him a snack.

    also on my aptimil box it says baby of 6 months will drink 5 times a day and then by 7 months they will drink 3 times 7 ounces of milk, my little one seems to have dropped his night feed that means he drinks 4 times a day but he only has 6 ounces. im confused how many ounces a day how many times hes 7 months in 3 weeks.

    plz helpppp

    Hi hun, at 6+ months once they'r on 3 meals, they need 18-21 oz to get all the nutrient they need from formula. Omar is 14 months & he only eats 1 proper meal with 2 snack meals. We started weaning at 6.5 months (spoon feeding real food), he went into 3 small meals between 8-8.5 months. He used to drink 3 bottles (between 15-18 oz) with his solids since we started weaning. He dropped 1 milk feed at 13 months. He's a big toddler & was a big baby (95-98th percentile for weight & height), if your LO is happy with what he's eating & drinking & getting varieties of solids there is nothing to worry about.
