How much milk should my 6mth old be drinking now he's on rice?

Need some advice. I've only had him on bottles for a few weeks , and the same with the baby rice. I;m just not sure how much milk he should be having now he's having two meals of rice a day. He's still waking up 4 times a night for a feed. Albeit not very much, but I don't want to over feed him. Plus I'm not sure what to do about him feeding so much at night.

Any tips or advice??

the recommendation is a minimum of 20oz but if your lo has only started weaning then he will probably take much more than this. Is he using the bottle to put himself back to sleep when he wakes or do you think it is genuine hunger? At that age ds took 5 bottles of maybe 6/7oz and one of them was in the night - he gave that feed up at 8 months.
