    Default How much milk?

    I have started my 11month old on cows milk for her lunchtime feed. As she has only ever been breastfed, I have no idea how much milk is 'normal'. I am managing to get her to drink about 50mL. This is also the first time she has had to drink out of anything other than a breast. She still has 3 huge breastfeeds in 24hrs (both sides, with the morning feed done twice in an hour).
    Can any mixed feeders help me, is 50mL too little an amount? TIA

    It's fine. It's more about her total dairy intake. From 12 months,.bubs need no more than 600ml dairy. At 13 months, DS2 will only drink a small.amount of cows milk...it's just not as sweet as breastmilk. But he has yoghurt, cheese and milk on his cereal. And bm 3-4 times/day which is impossible to measure

    Great, thank for that. I wish boobs had measures on them so I could tell how many mL she gets She does eat cheese and yoghurt daily too so I guess all is good. This whole bottle feeding thing is hard work!
