How much milk/formula do you give your LO?

I've finally weaned DD off of the boob.

I was giving her a bottle first thing in the AM, morning snack, pm nap, then bed.  I've now taken away the first two bottles in the AM.

Just wondering if i'm not giving her enough.  She has water with breakfast, and I'm giving her an AM snack of fruit or something along those lines.  If we're out, I'll give her a bottle, but if we're home, a snack.

What do you guys do?

    DD gets 24oz of milk a day. 3 bottles during the day with a sippy cup of milk at each meal. Whatever is left in her sippy cup at the end of the day goes in her 4th bottle of the day right before bed.

    DD is only on pediasure (and going in bi-weekly for weight checks) and I was told 16 ounces of fluid. She gets at least 8 from the pediasure and the rest from water.

     She has a BIG issue with milk and liquids in general.

    I would say anywhere from 16-24 oz is a good range.  All pedis different in their recommendation.  You can also supplement with cheese and yogurts.

    Up until 1 year (slightly past), they were getting 24 oz of formula a day. Once we transitioned to milk, our pedi recommended 16-24 oz of cow's milk a day. Will usually drinks 16-17 oz a day and Alex usually drinks about 20. They also each drink about 3 oz of juice (for constipation issues) and 8-10 oz of water a day.

    That's actually 16-20 oz total.
