Q.

How much milk

my baby is 3months 2 weeks and weight almost 7kgs. She's on formular milk - 150ml for 6 feeds a day for the past month. She's starting to be grumpy as if she's no longer getting enough. By how much should increase her milk? Is there a maximum amount of milk she should have a day, as I'd like introduce solids as late as possible.

Her weight is really excellent and well above the average weight for a baby girl of her age which is 6kg. So you are doing well.900ml is the amount of milk she needs per day but she seems to want a bit more.

Hi Nikki

In general a baby should drink 150ml for every kilogram of body weight.
