It it OK for a 8 month old to drink 40 plus oz a day.He already is on solids and wakes 2 times a night to eat a full bottle?

40 ounces: Your child may be waking twice a night because he is teething and not because of hunger. Try giving him a pain soother like tyleno or Ibuprofen at bedtime. When wakes up, go to him, do not pick him up or feed him. After 3-4 nights he should stop and you'll be able to get your well needed rest
