Q.

FEEDING

Dear Doctor

My 4 month old baby weighs 10.4kg - after alot of tests he seems to be perfectly normal and healthy. Over the last month he drank about 850ml of S26 Gold per day. However over the past week he just seems to be disinterested and refuses to drink more than 750ml a day. Is this a sufficient amount of milk for him?

Thank you.

Your baby's weight is very far above the average for his age. He is probably just taking a bit of a break now. Do not be concerned about him taking less formula now.
