Baby milk
3

Firstbaby1234 · 23/09/2022 10:47

My son who is 9 months has been on hungry baby milk since he was 3 months old, I am wondering wether to switch his milk now as he tends to only want about 4 ounces a time and only wants 3 bottles a day. He does however have 3 meals a day. Should I change his milk to the normal follow on milk or keep him on hungry baby?

Every health visitor and pediatrician I have asked about this have always said to just give normal infant milk. I would definitely try to switch him back and maybe up his solids.

In three months he can have cow's milk.so it might not make.a big difference either way what you do now.

Normal milk or the follow on milk? I don’t think he needs the hungry baby milk anymore which is why he isnt drinking a lot of it @TriedAndBested

The same as above really. Every health visitor, and midwife I have ever dealt with has always said not to use anything other than the standard baby formula. Now he’s eating three meals a day, I would try to get him back onto the standard baby formula milk and then switch to cows milk at 12 months.
