  • Sounds good, only a couple of mine were drinking only formula at that age and it was around the same amount - definitely not any less. It's not too much!

  • i dont think it should be a problem unless the doctor tells you otherwise. but you haveto remember she wouldn't eat if she isn't hungry. it could be a growth spirt thing
