For both milk and as total fluid intake???
My 12.5mo DS drinks only tiny amounts of water but does have 150-200ml whole milk mixed in to his cow and gate muesli (porridge) each day. I an trying to calculate roughly his fluid intake

Yes. You could give normal porridge, ready brek, weetabix at that age rather than baby stuff

Ready Brek original is just oats and out flour to make it smoother. Any normal porridge will do.

No, plain ready brek has no salt or sugar added

Ah OK i will try normal porridge then thanks. The cow and gate stuff is 10months+ so hes had it since then. Porridge will be 10x cheaper thanks

I found my DC much keener on normal porridge than readybrek OP so maybe try that first as its cheaper/easier to get in cafes etc if you eat out for breakfast ever.

Thank you. I have ordered some normal porridge to come on our grocery shop. Fingers crossed he likes it. He wasnt keen on wheetabix and he cant bare trying ro scrub it off him after - it sticks like glue!!
