Is this enough for a 7 mo. old?

my 7 month old eats 5 bottles a day, 6-7 oz each. So she gets 30-35 oz a day. Is that enough for her?
Im new to formula feeding so im not quite sure about how much she needs a day

  • yup thats about what my son was eating in formula, and then he ate his fruit and cereal twice a day so he got even more formula in his cereal twice a day. then around 9 months i think we added a meat/veggie for lunch. plus water while he was eating.

  • as long as she is full it's perfect, if not, give her more! My dd was on 4-5 8 oz bottles with 3 servings of solid foods... the bottles varied daily but she was a hungry one! There really is no "should" unless it's "should I feed her"
