Babies: 9 - 12 Months

How many ounces of formula is your LO still drinking/day

Mine's still drinking 28oz. I don't think there is a need to decrease it yet?

Re: How many ounces of formula is your LO still drinking/day

  • DS gets 28oz and DD gets 24oz. They get solids 3x/day. The pedi said that they could go down to 18oz/day at 9 months, but only IF they seem ready to do that. I really wish they would drop their formula consumption (we're spending a fortune on it)!

    Vitamin water? As in the sports drink, or something they make for babies?

    I give DD2 24 oz of formula (4 - 6 oz bottles) but I found out DH has been giving her more formula, 7-8 oz per bottle. I also give her water throughout the day, but I don't really monitor how much of that she drinks. She gets breakfast lunch and usually dinner if she doesn't pass out before I can get it in her. And she snacks on cheerios and applesauce in between snacks.

    I wondered about that too. If it's the Vitamin water I'm thinking of, I don't think that's really appropriate for a baby but I guess that's not my business.....

  • Has your pedi given you any direction on this yet? I would consult with your pedi before decreasing formula :)

  • DD is consuming 24oz of formula/breast milk per day...2-6oz bottles and 4-3oz bottles.  She has the smaller bottles with solid food meals and snacks.

  • Roughly 15oz maybe? It's hard to tell because we are done with bottles. She has formula in a cup the morning right when she wakes up, then a small cup of WCM with her breakfast (we started giving her a little bit now and then at 11 months), a cup of formula around 11-ish, lunch, and then another cup of formula around 4-ish and then she has dinner with a small cup of WCM. She has water available all day.

  • DS will be 11 months tomorrow.  He is still drinking 6oz bottles 5x/day.  I EP, so he gets all BM.  He also gets solids 3x/day.  I was just thinking about this the other day and trying to figure out when he should start drinking less.  He seems to be doing well with the 30oz/day, so we'll stick with that until his 12 month pedi appt and we see what they say.

  • 15-20 oz for us.  DD has been teething lately and we were really stressed about not getting the 20-24 oz we had been told she needed originally.  After talking again with the pedi she okayed the 15 oz.

    yeah they started drinking it when they were sick cause they got dehydrated and they got pedialite and gatoraid...  and they really liked it so I just didn;t stop giving it to them... even though they are no longer sick because they like it, it is being used to help transition to the sippy cup. 


  • Dd drinks 2830oz formula per day. 56oz bottles. She also eats 3x large meals per day. Sometimes I wonder where she packs it. lol

  • My son is only drinking about 16oz of formula a day.

    1 8 oz bottle in the morning when he wakes up
    1 8 oz bottle before bedtime

    during the day he eats:

    3 gerber "2" meals (1 "meal", 1 "veggie" and 1 "fruit")
    OR those pouches of food with the spoon you can attach (2 of those)
    This being at lunch and dinner

    Then he snacks on puffs and Mum-Mums and other stuff throughout the day.

    I can tell he gets full after his full meals, so that's good!
