it may be better to give your health visitor a shout for this cause each baby is different but when my son was 6/7 months he had one with each meal, then cause he was liking his solids lots he had one with his breakfast then one when he went to bed then one through the night, but the night one stopped by 8 months, can't remember how much he was drinking ounce wise i think it was 8/9 oz. hope this helps, it should also say on the tin of formula roughly what you should be giving her for her age/weight but again each baby is different.
take care x

If they're on bottles only,a rough guide is 2.5 ounces of formula to each pound of baby's weight.Depending how much solid food they eat you would obviously reduce that once eating solids.Depends on each baby,some are bigger than others.
I think Matilda had early morning,mid morning.Mid afternoon and bedtime at around that age.She had solids breakfast,lunch and teatime.She was on 9 oz bottles,but she weighed 25lb by then.At 14lbs I would think your little one would need less.
Definately speak to your hv.
