give her the same amount of milk as you gave of the previous milk e.g. if you gave 4 bottles of 7oz before then continue giving the same amount of bottles with the progress milk. The minimum recommended amount of milk for 6 months to 1 year is 20oz so yes I would offer a bit more. You didnt need to change to progress milk if your lo was happy on the previous milk as it was only invented so the manufacturers could get round the advertising ban on the first milk (from birth to 6 months). Just give your lo what they were having before and then let them dictate how much they actually want to drink.
