Q.

1st growth milk

Good day!
I''ve just switched over to Parmalat 1st growth milk for my almost 1yr old baby boy. He is a healthy, eats well. Just wondering what amount of milk he should be drinking now in a day. At the moment he drinks about 2 x 250ml per day and at night almost another 2, as he wakes up almost every 2-3 hrs. During the day, he also drinks a 150ml bottle water and sometimes purity tea. From my understanding, he''s last bottle should be at 10pm, but cos he wakes up so often he drinks right through. Pls advise.

Thanking you

I am not entirely sure about the amounts of milk that your son is drinking per 24 hours but it seems to be about 1 litre [1000ml].He should be having a maximum of 720 to 750ml per day. His total fluid intake per day should be about 1200ml.
