How much breast milk/formula/whole milk is your baby drinking these days?

Lilah is still not a solids fan, uggghhh.....so she's still having about 25oz of breast milk a day (with 1oz of whole milk mixed in...in a couple days we are going to start doing half/half). She always wants a bottle over food. I try to keep her on a regular food eating schedule, but sometimes (specifically dinner time), she wants nothing to do with it.

Thank you Kiliki... for my adorable signature!

Lexi is on the lower end. I offer her a sippy cup of milk at breakfast, lunch, and dinner. But overall I'd say 12-15 oz a day.

If I had to guess, I would say 30oz. She nurses 6 times a day and I'd bet that she is getting 5oz each time, although sometimes I am sure it's more or less. But it probably balances out. She usually eats a little breakfast, a little lunch, and a bigger dinner (seems to be her favorite meal). She likes food fine, but doesn't eat a lot at a time. 4-5 bites of a waffle, 1/4 of a yogurt or applesauce, 1 ritz cracker are all typical choices. She usually eats one thing at a meal. Sometimes a bit of a second thing. At dinner she might eat a few bites of chicken, some rice, and a sprig of broccoli. But no where close to self-sustaining on food at this point.

I don't really know the amount of milk that Kaeldra gets, since she's still nursing, but she nurses often, so it's a lot. She's also still not the biggest fan of solids, but I keep trying to give them to her. Sometimes she'll eat a lot during a sitting, and other times she'll just have a few bites.

Owen is refusing cow's milk, so I still nurse him in the morning and at night, then pump during the day when I'm at work. He probably gets between 12-15 oz a day. Not very much at all!
