He is probaly getting enough fluid, but he is not getting enough milk for his age. He seems to be filling himself up on the tea. Offer him his milk rather than the tea for at least 2 of his feeds when he usually drinks tea.

Hi there, my little one only drinks 4 bottles of 100ml a day , and most times we feed her when she sleeps, have you tried this. it can be daunting, but it works. SHe also loves rooibos , so we flavour the water with rooibos, but put her formula in it. may i ask which formula is she on
