How much milk for a 7 month old?

Hi ladies (and gents!)

Could anyone give me any guidance on how much milk a 7 month old should be having a day?

I'm finding it all a bit baffling as I was EBF'ing up until a couple of weeks ago. Now DD is having a bottle at 7.30pmish before bed, BF in the night if she wakes (normally at least a couple of times), a BF first thing in the morning..and then really I am trying to get her to take bottles as I am ready to start weaning her off the breast once and for all.

From memory I gave my DS a bottle every 3-4 hours, but he was off the breast earlier (6 months). I am also weaning DD so she has something for breakfast, lunch and in the early evening..mostly a bit of puree or a few finger food bits.

Anyone that can help with this confusion would be most appreciated! :)

    You really can't put say as every baby is just so different, what I would add though is when I changed mine from breast to bottle the breast milk was less filling and would still want more quicker then when they had breast milk before.

    As long as they are eating it, it's probably the amount they need! :)
    People don't know what they want until you show them.

    Not really at that age, because the baby will be being weaned and so milk intake varies. My LO is 7.5 months and having approx 25-28oz a day, in addition to breakfast, lunch and dinner.
