10 month old still on 4 bottles a day?

As all mums say, time is flying back and it suddenly hit me that LO is 10 months in a week and I am still giving him 4 bottles a day - wake up, mid morning, mid afternoon and bedtime. He is eating solids well and for three meals a day, and I have noticed that he is taking less of a bottle each time. Usually 100-150ml at each feed.

Should I drop a bottle? And if so which one? He loves solid food so thinking I might replace either the mid morning or mid afternoon with a piece of fruit instead. Would love to hear any advice!

He also has a habit of waking up at 530 or 6 - so was also wondering if we should drop that early morning bottle in the hope he starts to sleep later.

Any advice? Everything online seems to be "let your baby guide you" - well my LO likes his milk and food and seems quite happy to continue with both!!! wink

Thanks in advance xxx

No, don't drop! The NHS recommend ideally at least 500ml formula a day for exclusively formula fed babies between 6 months and 1. There's no reason at all to go below that at this age. Four bottles of 150ml sounds fine.
