How much formula a day?

Does anybody know how many oz. of formula a 10 month old should drink a day?
My son drinks 20 oz.s and about 5 containers of baby food,
plus a bowl of cereal in the morning, and a snack once a day.. is that too much or too little?!

  • I remember reading somewhere at 12 months they should have 20 - 32 oz of formula a day. Here is a link to the chart..

  • I'm no doctor, but I would GUESS that since he is eating a good amount of baby food 20oz of formula is not bad. if he is growing, healthy, and happy i wouldn't worry too much! I know thats hard though...being a mom means being a worrier for life! :)
