  • i think that sounds about right.. if your making 8 o bottles.. my son goes thru a large can about every ten days... if not longer.. he only has 5 6oz bottles a day...

  • That sounds about right at least according to my kids.

  • Sounds about right for my son, too. On the plus side, it'll slow down a little in about 3 months as he starts eating more and more solids. I'm hard-pressed to get 24oz into my son these days!

  • small can why not go buy bigger one it was save you money in the long term..

    when my daughter was 5 months she start solids and was breast feed and was taking about4- 6oz of formula at night.

  • I'd say that right. I have twins and a can last about 1 1/2 If there was only one it would work out to a can every 3 days.
