Worried lo is not having enough milk

I started my baby on solids around 5 months as he was showing signs and I thought it was the right time. So he is now 6 months and having 2 meals a day and an odd piece of fruit as a snack but he is only having 21/22oz of milk per day I am just worried this isn’t enough but he seems happy and content and I’m all honesty seems to prefer his food😬 I know their milk is suppose to still be the main thing for them but I’m unsure what todo and if this is right? Thanks guys

my lo is the same ages been weaning since 4 months old and she only does about 23/24oz per 24 hours and she’s fine aslong as they aren’t dipped they are getting enough that’s what a health visitor told me

My lo is only have 20 ozs a day as that’s all she can tolerate, health visitor isn’t concerned about weight gain or anything she’s 5.5 months

I’ve been weaning from 5 months, 6 months next week. Currently on 3 meals & HV said to go from 5 bottles to 3 but lo has seemed hungry & cranky so I’ve gone back to 4 bottles & is getting roughly 29oz. Lo has. Always had reflux & was ringing up more so that why HV said to decrease milk but like I say he was still hungry and looking more so just accepting that he’s going to bring up quite a bit. It’s so hard to know 🙈

Milk in food counts too, so if you make porridge or give them a yoghurt for example that counts as their daily intake. If baby is still having wet nappies then it should be fine x

Reduce the food they’re having if you’re worried about milk intake. They really don’t need a lot at 6 months!

I don’t think 21/22oz is too less at all. If he seems happy then I’d just keep it as it is x

I've been weaning since 3½ months and my son has 30 oz per day. But he has a high metabolism. If you are worried called the pediatrician

@Krystal Hart wow that’s really early to wean

@Hana yes I know but my pediatrician recommend me to start early because he was eating every 30 minutes- an hour with 7-9 oz bottle
