Is my baby consuming enough liquids?
Q:
A: My 5-month-old baby weighs 18 pounds and drinks about 24 to 29 ounces per day. I read that the right amount should be 2½ ounces per pound, so that means she should be drinking 55 ounces total. She just started eating solid food twice a day and eats an ounce or less of it. Is she getting the right nutrition?
