  • At that age, that's about what my son was going through. And as he got older and ate more, he peaked at about 17-18 cans a month. (The little 12-oz ones, which I'm assuming is what you're talking about.)

  • My baby is 11 months old and we go thru 6-7 cans per month. We've never gone thru more than 10 cans per month since she was born.

  • About 1 a week is average. My baby is 3 months old, but she's not a very big eater :(

  • We went through about 1 of the big cans a week of the powder formula that was also the 20% more free cans. Now my daughter is 9 1/2 mo and we go through one of those big cans every 7-10 days.
