  • 1 to 2 ounces per pound of body weight is what I was told. What is not eaten at one feeding may be made up at another or if he is on table food the number of ounces will be on the lower end. as long as he is growing at a good rate and meeting the diaper quota (5-6 wet diapers) then your good. :0)

  • by 11 months I was beginning to wean my kids off of the bottle so they were down to two 8oz bottles a day and by the time they turned 1 they were down to just one 8oz bottle a day (usually before bed) and then that was taken away.
    They were eating all table food in between.

  • The max is 32 ounces a day. By 11 mon your baby should be eating regular food including meat for iron, not baby cereals or foods. You don't want your baby to be overweight. Over one third of children are now overweight and we know many begin to have weight problems while babies or toddlers.
