My 9 month isn't drinking her bottles well. She's only getting about 18-20 oz. A day. Should I be concerned?

In brief: Other sources ?

We want to be sure baby is hydrated, and she is if wetting every 6 hours or so.
Since she can get fluid value from many foods (applesauce 95% water,vegies 60%), she may just be meeting her needs that way.If she is and she is gaining weight, she is just shifting her feeding pattern.

In brief: 9 MONTH FEEDING

It depends if the baby is growing well.
At 9 months he eats everything including table food. He might be eating more solids and less fluid intake. Check with your peds.
