Milk - how much?

Hi Girls,

Nathaniel is now on 3 full meals a day and sleeping through (thank goodness) he has on an average day :- 240 ml of milk and porridge (made up from this milk) piece of toast or yog. bottle mid morning but lucky if he takes 100 ml, lunch is always protein and veg plus fruit and yog, then we try a bottle mid aft so maybe another 100 then he has dinner, which is normally a good full size meal plus a pudding, we try to give him milk before he goes down but more often or not he leaves it, we also offer him water during the day but he is not that interested.

Does anyone know what amount of milk he should be having? i spoke to the doctor and she said what we are doing is fine and if i feel its low to give him lots of dairy products, which i do anyway.

any tips welcome xxx

Hmmm I work in ounces so not sure how much help I would be, I think at 11 months we more or less had full bottle am, so I think 9oz and then 3pm and then bed. I think A would have about 16oz tops throughtout the day. I also used his milk to make up porridge etc and offer cheese, yoghurt as you're doing.

Must admit A didn't start having water properly as a drink throughout the day until much later. He still has about 9oz cows milk in the morning and 4-5 at night now, at 2, with water all through.

Hope this helps, with formula theres a guide on the box that should explain what your little one will roundabouts be having at his age/weight. Remember, it's a guide and won't mean N should categorically have that so don't panic if it's less/more.
