  • According to a sheet i have from the hospital says for 6 months 6-8 oz 3 to 4 times a day. I think this is also about the time you can start baby food to. So im not sure. Hope it helped.

  • 6-7oz every 3-4 hours. no more than 32oz a day...i believe that's how much is the limit. you can also start your baby on cereal if you haven't already. my dd is will be 7 months tomorrow and i recently started her on cereal, only for dinner though. however, it may fluxuate drastically if your baby is teething.

  • She shouldn't be drinking milk at all, really. She should still be eating as much formula or breast milk as she wants. You can't overfeed a baby...they'll spit it back up if it's too much.

    Mine were huge eaters. At 6 months we started introducing finger and table foods.

    Breakfast....8oz formula in sippy, full serving of cereal mixed with stage 2 jar of fruit.
    Snack...8oz juice/water in sippy, and cheerios/crackers/puffs...some finger food
    Lunch...8oz formula in sippy, two stage 2 jars of food thickened with cereal
    Snack...(same as morning snack)
    Supper...8oz formula in sippy, two stage 2 jars of food thickened with cereal
    Before bed...8oz formula in sippy

    They had been taking an average of 45oz per day and when we added food they finally dropped to about 32oz.. We also started giving them little bites of what we were eating at the meals.
