    My little girl is more interested in looking at stuff around her (the cats, the room) so bf is getting harder and harder. I know they say that they take what they need, but she barely bf anymore, so when she was sick I gave her some bottles during daytime and now I think this is the end of my breastfeeding days :(

    Anyway, my question is, how much formula do you give your babies? I try to give her some water, she drinks a couple of sips, but not much. She is 7 months.

    She gets porridge in the morning and in the evening, fruits and a hot meal (vegetables, meat, fish) during the day.

    I think mine were taking about 8oz at that stage, I'm pretty sure it was a full bottle! In fact, E had a bottle and then some! They're all different tho! And my memory's probs not that great any more :blush:
