My 14 month old drinks 1 1/2 bottles a day.

BUT... it mixed with his formula.

1 oz of Nutramigen formula, 1 oz of Pedisure.

I prepare him 4 bottles of 2 oz (yep... 2 ounces a feeding and he will only take it when he is napping or sleeping) during the day. The most he drinks is 2 bottles but I prepare 4 just in case. The extra 4 oz his twin drinks (not to waste).

Then his nightime bottles... 8 bottles of 2 oz (yep, still night time feeding cause he tiny).

He been drinking Pedisure since 10 months when he went on formula strike for 3 weeks and this was the only milk he would drink without throwing up or gagging. Mixed with his formula.

I am curious... how many bottles of Pedisure does your FTT child drink a day? How old are they and how long have they been drinking Pedisure?

DD has been on PediaSure since she was 15 months and she will be 6 years old this month. She is supposed to have a minimum of 2 bottles a day, but she almost never drinks that much.

Big thanks to KimberlyD0 for my amazing siggy

When we had to try Danny on Vital Jr. (which he failed due to allergies) he was taking 4 cans every day.

Ava would never drink pediasure. Have you tried Boost Breeze? It's a high calorie fruit juice and most insurances will pay for it.

Thank you, tasha_mae, for my siggy!

Kiersten takes 3 cans per night via feeding tube, and throughout the day I give her about 3 8oz cups of whole milk with CIB to pump up her caloric intake, plus whatever 3lse I can get into her.
I'm going to ask about that Boost Breeze. We've tried the Boost Kid Essential and that made her sick.
