Milk feeds for 11 month old

Hi Dr. I have breastfed my little girl of 11 months old. Earlier this week I noticed that I don''t have enough milk as she is still hungry after feeding. I''m now thinking of putting her on formula. She is already on formula milk in the morning. My question is how much milk should she have. How many bottles? And how much mil in each bottle? With her 9 month injection she weighed 10.5kg and is eating 3 meals a day

Your baby needs about 1200ml of total fluid per day now.Some babies will drink slightly less than this. She should have three milk formula feeds per day. The rest can be made up of water and also one dilute fruit juice or rooibos tea per day.
