Now that our babies are either 9 months or nearing 9 months and some of us are feeding them more solid foods, I was just wondering how many ounces of formula(if you do formula) do you feed them a day?? I have read some conflicting things on line so I wanted to ask here. I am going to ask my doctor on the 9th when I see her but I just wanted a little input before I went...
I have read any where from 16 ounces to 32 to ounces and anything in between. I am slowly leaning towards feeding Kay more solid foods as she not only seems ready but yells at us if we don't share with her or give her her own portion or if she has the bottle and sees us eating food she will try and get that food rather then drink her bottle.
As of right now she is getting a 7 ounce bottle in the morning when she wakes up and then she will get a little bit of what I am eating for breakfast depending on what it is, then at lunch she gets the amount of 2 jars of baby food (I make my own) and I have just started giving her half apple and water to drink. Then just before dinner around 4:00 she gets between a 5 or 7 ounce bottle of formula depending on what we are having for dinner and if I can give her some of that. Then she gets her last bottle of formula which is 6 or 7 ounces depending on how much she ate and what time she last ate. So she gets between 18 and 21 as of this last week or so.
In between those feedings she gets cheerios and a biscuit type thing, can't remember the name of it...... But she loves her food. lol..
When do you cut back formula and bring in more solids? And does it depend more on the baby then the age?
