Q.

Milk intake

Hi Doc
How much milk should a 12 months old drink?
My son wan on NAN 2, i have now introduced Nido, he loves it and wants to have more of it. I give him the bottle 3 times a day(150mls in the morning, and during the day and 225 mls before going to bed) is this enough or too much? Please advice
Thank you

Your son needs 120ml per kg per day as his fluid requirements. This is for all fluids including his formula. Your son does not appear to be taking too much in the way of the Nido if he is drinking enough other fluids such as water.
