hi Swathi Suresh! a 5 months old baby should have around 900 ml of milk in 24 hours. another thumb rule is baby will have between 150 to 200 ml of formula milk per kg of her body weight everyday. so even if her intake is somewhere closer , it's not a cause of concern . monitor her weight gain and activity level. also avoid force feeding. keep a gap between two feeds and Look for signs of hunger. only if the baby is hungry will she be interested in having milk. hope this helps!
