ANSWER #1 of 3

A 12 month old (1 yr old), should be drinking 16 oz of whole milk/d. No more formula is needed if he is eating 3 meals and 2-3 snacks. If your child gags with more textured foods then speak with the pediatrician or dietitian where you live.

If your 1 yr old does not eat table foods properly due to the gagging then be sure to ask pediatrician for a formula that is appropriate for a 12 month old, he made need a formula with more vitamins and minerals. Make sure he is only drinking 4-6 oz of juice/d which is the rec'd of the academy of pediatrics.
