Q.

6 month old milk intake

My baby boy is 6 months old and drinks 600-800ml formula (Nan2) per day. He also eats cereal (3 table spoons) for breakfast, 1 bottle (small) purity for lunch and 4 tablespoons cereal for dinner. Should I try to increase his fluid intake.
He doesn''t sleep through the night as well. What can I do to help? He weighs 9.54kg. Thank you.

The average weight for a 6 month baby boy is 8kg, Your baby's weight is far above the average.There is no need for you to be very worried, he is obviously eating and drinking enough at this stage for his needs even though the recommended fluid intake for a baby of this age is 960ml per day.
