How many bottles should my 6 month old have

My son, at 6 months, had about 7 bottles with 5oz in them.

He definitely eats a lot, but is always satisfied with that much. Lucas at 6 months was 21lbs and 27 inches tall too, so that much formula a day was okay for him. Now, at 7 months, he eats 5 times a day. 3 feedings of a 6oz bottle and 2 feedings of 4oz bottle with some jar food


when both of my kids were 6 months old they were eating breakfast, lunch, dinner, and a bedtime bottle. So they had 4 bottles each day. Some babies may be more hungry and require more bottles. I liked them eating four times a day, and I would just give them more milk at each feeding if they were hungry.
