How much formula is your baby eating?

My daughter is 11 months and she eats about 24-28 oz a day and a nurse at the health clinic said she should be getting around 36 or more a day. I was just wondering how much you give your 10-12 month old baby.

  • Nah. My doctor said that 20-24 was normal for my 10 month old given all the solids that she eats. Do you supplement a lot with baby or regular food? My daughter is 10 months and eats 24 oz formula a day. She gets about 4 oz fruit, either chunks or puree, 4 oz veggies, either chunks or puree, 3 oz protein puree and then some puffs or yogurt melts for a snack. The doctors say she is right about where she should be.

  • She usually eats a 4oz bottle early morning, half a stage 2 jar of veggie w/another bottle mid morning, half a stage 2 meat w/another bottle mid afternoon and half a stage 2 fruit w/another bottle at night or just a bottle. She snacks on her puffs and animal cookies, she gets yogurt or a Popsicle every once in a while or some bread or pasta.
    She is healthy and likes to eat everything you give her, so that is why I am not concerned about her not getting enough, just wanted to know if she was eating about the same amount as the average 11 month old is.
