There is no precise and exact data on how milk should be adapted to your baby. As with adults, babies appetite varies from day to day, from feeding to feeding.


As a rough guide how much you can take your baby probably will be during the day by taking an average of 70 g a formula for every 450 g of weight of your baby. For example, babies 4500 g heavy will eat about 700 g formula for 24 hours. Keep in mind that this will not apply to smaller babies, premature babies or babies over 6 months of age. It is also important to remember that all babies are different, some have a greater appetite than others bearing in mind that your baby is still physically progressing and if your pediatrician is satisfied with his / her progress, then why you do not have to worry about. You will notice that generally baby taking less milk you do not feel good, and more milk when you grow faster (this typically occurs between 2.3. and 6 weeks and 3 and 6 months of age), and this is completely normal.

Rough guide

Newborns - The first weeks of life baby should eat less and more than once a day because their tummy is not big enough to hold large amounts of milk at once. Many babies will consume somewhere between 30 and 60 ml per meal, eating 8 - 10 times a day.

One month baby - During the first months your baby will begin to take more milk during the meal each time, gradually increasing the amount of 60 - 90 ml 90 - 120 ml per serving. It would be good each time increase the amount of milk to 30 ml per serving because it will provide enough milk to your baby every time she feels can increase their meal, and also to prevent interruption of meals, if the baby is still hungry to make a additional amount that will saturate. When your baby starts to empty the whole bottle with the regular amount (though you should never force your baby to drink all the milk if you do not want to) you will know that your baby is increased appetite.

2 months old baby - When your baby turns two months, will require food 6-8 times a day, consuming 120-180 ml at each meal.

4 month old baby - 4 months old babies typically need 4-5 servings per day and consume 180-200 ml of milk per meal.

6 months old baby - By the time your baby turns 6 months, usually require 3-4 meals a day with consumption of 200-220 ml of milk per meal. When you start introducing solid foods to your baby's diet quantity of milk is essential to your baby, will gradually be reduced. However, many babies will still need adapted 600 ml of milk a day even when they establish the quantity and the intake of solid food. Many parents feel that giving a bottle with milk in the morning and at bedtime, reduces the required amount of formula. Some believe that this is a good routine for babies and parents, but eventually you realize yourself what's best for you.

One year baby - When your baby is a year old, you can start getting used to the full-fat cow's milk. Baby should be continued for 350 ml per day to ensure continuity in her nutrients it needs.
