my almost 4m old drank 48 oz today, how much is too much?

DS had been SSTN until a couple days ago (4mw??) Last night he woke up at 1,3, and 5 and drank 6 oz bottles.  plus 6 oz every 2.5 hrs after that.  Our formula bill is getting expensive!  No wonder I couldn't keep up with nursing him and his brother.

    Woah.  That seems like a lot.  Lisee usually drinks around 25 oz a day.

    Wow, that seems like a lot to me too. My son usually has between 24-28 ounces a day.

    If they are drinking that much formula and are almost 4 months old, you may want to ask the pediatrician about starting solids. Our doc said that once LO was drinking about 32oz of formula per day, it was time to start solids while still offering the bottles the same amount of times a day. It may be worth a shot!
