The funny thing is that I have an older daughter who is 12 and have been through this before!! So much has changed in guidelines though. I am having a hard time remembering what exactly I did for her, lol.



Just a bonus question: He eats around 28 ounces a day right now. I can expect that to increase then....but to what? I have about a month and a half of frozen BM in our freezer downstairs (assuming he stayed at 28 ounces) and am trying to figure out when I can quit pumping!

my 10 month old eats around 50 oz a day, not including when he snacks on a bottle before naps. about six 8 oz bottles from 6 am-9 pm



He also gets breakfast, lunch, and dinner as solids and has snacks throughout the day. He doesn't eat baby food, he eats what we eat basically, or we'll cook him something else that is suitable.

Quoting luvmytween:" I will ask our pediatrician next month at his 4 month checkup, but I was hoping to get some idea of what ... [snip!] ... formula intake? When did you start them on cereal (or at all)? How often were you replacing a bottle ith solids and t what age?"

I never decreased breast milk intake. I feed on demand and follow baby's cues. She started nursing less around 7 months. She is 9 months now and nurses about 3 times a day and 2-3 times at night.

It's different for every baby. That number could stay the same, I just wouldn't expect it to decrease.



I knew a mom that was feeding her baby 10oz while my son was only eating 4-5oz.
