J is only taking 3-4 oz of formula every 3-4 hours and once at night. I can occasionally get him to take 5 oz in the morning and before bed, but not often. He eats a mix of purees and table food 2-3 times a day as well. He's still following his growth curve so his pedi isn't concerned, but I worry.

6 ounces in the morning, 4-5 oz. mid morning, 4-5 oz. mid afternoon, 5 oz. bedtime, 6 oz. during the night. So 25-27 oz total.. he went through a stage for maybe 3 weeks where the milk intake went down a lot! Solids are: Breakfast- egg or oatmeal with fruit Snack- apple sauce or fruit Lunch- yogurt Snack- self feed fruits, veggies, or puffs Dinner- protein, veggies
I think I should give him more veggies and carbs of some kind. I wouldn't worry about the milk intake decreasing, I think it's normal. Easier said than done I know!
He's getting 5 bottles a day right now. I think he probably averages around 20oz. He had been taking 30oz a day previously. The solids could be accounting for some of that, but a 10 oz decrease just seems like a lot to me.
Ethan does 5 oz every 3 hours during the day for 25 oz total. He does oatmeal for breakfast, an egg and a fruit for lunch and then veggies and a protein for dinner. This is new because he hadn't been able to do any table food without puking until Christmas.
He's up to 25% for weight on his growth curve. Up from 7th percentile in October. Go little man, go!

I'm still nursing, but she nurses before her 2 naps and before bed. Lately she's been nursing all night since we've been travelling. Before we moved, it was only once MOTN. She eats up to 7 oz of purees at some meals. If I make scrambled eggs, she eats a ton of that. She usually gets a pouch and some kind of table food from my plate with it (breakfast, lunch, dinner.)
She's a piggy. She was 18lbs12oz on 12/21 and then 2 weeks later was 19lbs13oz. There could be some scale discrepancy but she definitely looks like she pudged up over the holidays lol.

Lately, very little since she hasn't been feeling well. We aim for: 25 oz per day and three meals plus one snack. We usually get about 20oz, 1-2 meals and maybe a snack. We are preparing for the pedi to recommend supplementing past 1 year. She was a wopping 16oz at urgent care on Saturday and that was with a wet diaper and all her clothes on.

We are doing 6 bottles at 6.5oz each between 6:30 am and 8 pm. At DC she gets oatmeal and fruit purée for breakfast, a vegetable purée and something else for lunch, and a snack. At home usually just the bottles. She's not interested in table food yet. I think it might be because she was early. I don't think she's topped 15 lbs, but it feels like she eats all the time and she's solid and is cruising the furniture, crawling, and starting to let go. It also could be her metabolism.
I hope the pedi doesn't get on me too much at her 1 year appt but I can't force her to eat bite size stuff unless she wants to.
We are still in the 30-34 oz range for formula. She eats 24 oz at daycare with no solids and then does solids for dinner but gets some formula every MOTN wakeup which is killing us.
That's Brady too with the overnight feeds and I'm OVER IT. He gets about 18oz at daycare, but has 2 puree meals there also, another bottle before bed and usually 2 bottles during the night because he sucks at sleeping. I'm wondering what's going to happen when we switch to whole milk if he'll still want it in the motn.
