My ds son has only been on bottle for 3 wks and is taking rice twice a day now. I was feeding him at night myself until last wk, as I was so exhausted and couldn't cope with getting up to feed him.

He seems to be taking alot of milk still, even though he's having the rice now too. Does anyone know how much he should be having?

He is also waking up 4 or 5 times a night for a bottle, albeit not very much, but I'm not sure how to wittle that down either.

Does anyone have any tips or advice please? Thanks

Sorry I BF Both of mine at this stage so cant help with actual amount of milk. Only to say that rice has hardly any nutritional value so in my experience they don't tend to drop the amount they drink until they are eating much more solids
We all find it exhausting at some time or another heres a [hug] to help you through

At this stage ds2 was having 4/5 bottles a day (210-240 ml each time). Didn't do baby rice though, just normal food.

A month or so later, now solids are established, he has 3 bottles of 210ml.

Do you dream feed?
Is it defintely hunger that wakes him in the night? Could he be cold, teething, something else?
