How much milk does your 8 month old have?

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?

A minimum of 20oz is recommended between 6 months and 1 year so I wouldn't be dropping any milk amounts. Give breakfast with extra milk not less.

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.

Over 24 hours he has about 29oz.
