Q.

How much formula?

Hi my baby is on Neutramigen formula. He is 9 months old. He drink 2 bottles of 180ml during the day at creche. Then 180ml at about 19h00. Then 220ml at about 23h00 and 03h00 in the morning. Is it to much? He eats 3 meals a day and also drink rooibos tea during the day. He is a little bit chubby

This does not appear to be an excessive amount of milk for your baby. Milk is the most important food at his age. His total fluid intake should be 120 to 150ml per kg per day
