Q.

Amount of formula

Hi, My son is 11 months old and eats 3 solid meals a day. At the moment he is having 4 x 200ml bottles of milk as well. One in the morning, one at about 10, one at about 2 and one after his bath before bed. When should I start decreasing the amount of formula that he drinks. He drinks water throughout the day as well.

When is he allowed to drink juices like oros, fruit juice, etc?

I presume that your son is gaining weight well and growing well.You can reduce his formula to 3 times aday now. He can have diluted fruit juice once daily but not Oros because of the preservatives in this drink.
