I feel like Anthony isn't getting enough milk at all.He drinks 6oz of formula right before bed and then nurses at that time and also throughout the night.All day long he doesnt drink anymore whole milk or formula and rarely nurses.
I give him whole milk in the sippy cup but he's not interested.
He eats very well (EVERYTHING..)
should I be concerned??

I have stressed and stressed over milk intake. It sounds like your little guy is getting the milk at night - and doesn't want it during the day. How much does he nurse? Do you think he is getting alot - or do you think he is just comfort nursing at night? I would say, even if all he gets is 10 ounces during the night - he should be fine. Are you planning on weaning at 1? Do you offer him formula/breast during the day too?

Michael gets about 22 ounces of EBM a day. We no longer nurse at all. I guess he does just fine on it - and I would say if Anthony is getting alot of nutrients through food - at this age, i wouldn't stress it. But - if you are worried he isn't getting enough, you may want to just put a call in to the pediatrician to be on the safe side. I do know all kids are different, and I really wish I didn't spend as much time as I did stressing over milk!

Parker has been waking up in the middle of the night...I think that it is from all the new things he is learning and the teeth that are coming in. He eats 6oz then, 6oz of a morning before nap, 6oz in the afternoon, 6oz before nap, 6oz at bed. So...he is still getting about 30oz, which is probably too much.

I just know that it keeps him full and happy, so that is what is important. I know that when we go to our 1 year appointment we will talk about what is next, which is whole milk. He likes water from a sippy cup, so he gets that during meals.
