Milk intake

My daughter is almost 6months (5 mnths 3 wks) I''m just worried about my angels milk intake. During the day she drinks 150ml and she doesn''t drink this up all at once, she sips on it throughout the day I will say she drinks about 50ml at once (hope you get what am saying?). Then at night she drinks 300ml, so in a day I''ll say she drinks 450ml of milk. Is this enough??

She is already on solids and eating very well, she also has her tea, water and juice which she takes very well. But just concerned about her milk intake. She''s on NAN HA because of her aczema.

Your baby's main source of nutrition is her milk. She should be drinking mostly milk in preference to all other fluids. She needs 140ml of fluid which should mainly be milk for every kilogram she weighs per day;example if her weight is 7kg she needs 7x140=980ml per day.
