  • 2-3 I think is the average recommendation


  • Check out the formula tins as they always have the amount of bottles each age bracket should have and go off that.


  • I would say about 4 bottles a day now with puree food in between.


  • About 4 – one first thing (early morning) – one after the first day – next after second nap and the last just before bed


  • There should be a consumption amounts as a guide on the side of the formula tin. For that age it’s usually around 3-4 200ml bottles per day I think


  • I’m giving my little guy (currently 8 months) 4 x 200ml bottles per day but I’ve always been guided by my children as to what they need.


  • Mine were having 3-4 – I normally went by the guidelines on the formula tins.


  • Maybe 3 but it is hard to say really, depends on the individual baby.


  • How many is he having now since you posted it?


  • My girl was having 4 at that age


  • Hope you found the answer you were looking for and all is going well for you


  • If hvn bottle it will tell u on side of formula tin


  • Not sure on the number of bottles as I breastfed, but make sure he gets lots of water in between bottles and also some solids and snacks :)


  • 3 bottles as they getting older u really need to cut it out eventually


  • As long as his having at least 3 bottles a day and at least 3 good Solid meals breakfast, Lunch, Dinner and bottles inbetween
