DD is 7mo and just drank her first bottle of formula today. I'll probably swap slowly from BF now, but she's still not eating very much - munches on finger food for a bit and takes a spoon or two of mash, that's all. How much formula do you offer at this stage to ensure they get enough milk but doesn't put them off trying food as well?

i offer her bits of whatever we're having at mealtimes, so 8.30ish, 12.30ish and 5.30ish.
TIA.

at 7 months ds had 5 bottles of around 6/7oz each although one of them was in the night. He dropped the night bottle around 8 months leaving the 4 daytime ones. A minimum of 20oz is recommended from 6 months to 1 year.

thanks seona, I was thinking something around those lines, so that's reassuring.
