How much milk does your LO drink?

My twins each drink about 40-50 oz of milk a day.

Is that a lot?

  • 40-50 ounces is too much. Try offering water in place of some of that milk.

  • Fallaya-they get juice and water each day as well. They get a 10 oz cup of milk with every meal and then one before bed. They get a 10 oz cup of juice or water with their snacks twice a day.

    All of this is in addition to pretty good size food portions.
