23 month old milk requirements

My daughter is currently 23 months old. She still drinks 3 bottles of forumula (NAN 3, when she wakes up in the morning, before her afternoon nap and before she goes to bed at night) and still eats her meals and snacks. When is the best time to wean her off the formula? And how much milk should she be drinking at this age?

Your little girl is almost 2 years old.She should be on a regular full cream milk. She only needs about 2 cups of milk a day now.

My 23 mth son is now only having a bottle at night, but has other liquids during the day, and eats well. I do give him a quarter cup milo in the morning before school. Altho all kids are different, I am justing letting you know since our babies are the same age.
