I just wanted to get an idea from other mums how much milk their 8 month old has in a day, or the amount my 8 month old seems to be ok, I was speaking to a friend who has a one year old and she seemed outraged and said he's not having enough milk. So this is his day it terms of milk/food - 7am - 5oz milk 10:30 - snack 12/1pm - lunch 3pm - milk feed 4oz 5pm - dinner 6/7pm - 6oz milk
I haven't introduced breakfast yet, as he is always without a doubt sick in the morning. I am thinking to give less milk and mix it with porridge in the morning for his breakfast.
I'm lead by him, I used to offer more milk but he wouldn't be interested, I think he prefers a snack. Is 15oz of milk ok in 24hrs?
My DS has quite a bit more than that but probably less food as I'm attempting BLW. He's been steadily on the 50th centile since birth. He has:
Breakfast: porridge made with 2oz formula Mid-morning: 6oz formula Lunch: usually bits of fruit or veg, peanut butter or hummus on toast and 3 oz formula Mid-afternoon: 6oz formula Dinner: a bit of whatever I have and some fruit and yoghurt Evening: 6oz formula Bedtime: 6oz formula
I give him sips of water with his meals but he's not especially fussed.
