Hi, how much formula intake should a 7month old baby have? who is on 3 small meals a day :)

Hi Christie,

Thanks for getting in touch. At around 7 months you should aim for 3-4 200ml feeds of formula a day. At this stage it is still important to offer milk feeds before solid food. At around 8 months you can start you offer your solid food first, followed by around 600ml of formula a day.

If you’d like to discuss further, please don’t hesitate to call our Careline to speak with one of our Nutritionists on 0800 55 66 66.
