    I still have a baby that will happily have 20/22 oz of milk plus his juice/water :shock:

    He is eating very well as well but he would have a (bigger :roll: ) ffit if I held milk off him and can say milk and bottle so I know what he wants!

    What are your lo"s drinking?

    Hey,
    My Lo is off milk at the mo, hes had a stinking cold mind. But usually he will have around 14oz of milk not sure how much water. But it def varies from day to day. The more he eats the less milk he has. He does have three biggish meals a day xxxxx

    Oscar is having between 14-16oz per day, he probably would have more some days and less others, but I average 2 x 7 or 8oz cups a day. Plus he drinks loads of water throughout the day too.

    Sebastian has two beakers of milk in the morning (so I reckon around 14oz of milk?) then we just leave his beaker out with water in all day (obviously changing the water or refilling it as and when needed) so I don't know how much water he drinks. And he has one beaker of juice with his dinner.

    My boys have about 18oz of milk a day - 2 bottles filled to the brim although the big boy would happily drink more.... They also have water with every meal.

    Devon has only 4 oz of cows milk at bedtime in a different beaker , and water the rest of the day, (not interested in the milk). He does have a big bowl of readybrek in the morning which is made with milk too, but I do worry he doesn't get enougth of it - lots of the babies are getting much more?

    Are the ones that are drinking much less cows milk , the longer boob fed babies ? just out of interest if its a taste thing?

    Rainbow - we had this from xmas for the milk, but he has 16 teath now at 13 mths! so he split the inside of the hole in the soft spout from being rough in about 6 weeks!

    http://www.boots.com/en/Thomas-Silicone-Spout-Twin-Handled-Beaker-300ml_1219969/?cm_mmc=Shopping%20Engines-_-Kelkoo-_---_-Thomas%20Silicone%20Spout%20Twin%20Handled%20Beaker%20300ml

    they do nice girly ones too, think its hello kitty

    So we got this from sainsburys, same price at £3.99 and sturdier, but fairly tall, but it is more grown up and will be good for water later on when out and about

    http://www.mysupermarket.co.uk/#/grocery-categories/baby_drinking_cups_in_sainsburys.html

    hope that helps, it's the soft spout that Devon likes, I like the non spillness , unless he sticks his finger in the top!
