I'm hoping someone can just advise me if I'm giving my DS (who's almost 6 months) too much milk?
I express for him because a) I went back to work when he was 12 weeks and b) he was a preemie and never got the hang of BF.
Anyway I'm still happy to express and have a great supply. Over supply almost!!! My question is he drinks upto 6/7 9onz bottles a day!!! We're not weaning yet as I was waiting till 6 months as per guidelines but he just needs so much milk and is a huge 26lbs! (Daddy's 6"7 so it doesn't surprise me) but does anyone think that's too much?

My baby was on the 91st centile line. She was drinking 7 or 8 bottles of 8oz (drinking about 7oz of the bottle) from 5 months until about 7 months old.

She had feeds every 2h to 2h30m through the daytime and a dream feed.

I think it’s pretty difficult to overfeed a baby on breastmilk - but maybe that is just breastfeeding hmm not too sure. But if he’s happily drinking it all I’d suggest he needs it!
