: Hi, My 8 1/2 month old usually drinks 16 to 20 onces formula and eats solids adequately but lately, he just wants formula and barely any solids. Now is up to 24 to 27 onces formula. Should I decrease his formula intake so that he eats more solids or should I let him eat how he wants? He is a small baby so I'm concerned that he gains weight adequately.
: Thank you
I would slightly cut down on the formula so that he eats some more solids. Although formula is important, it is good to have some variety in the baby's diet.
