My son is 17 months old - I give him a 5oz bottle first thing and another 5 oz bottle at bedtime. I've moved him onto semi-skimmed because he is quite chunky and doesn't need the fat. Is this too much milk? My mother in law seems to think so He only drinks water the rest of the day. Has milk also in cereal, cheese, yoghurt etc.... Thanks x

I don't think you are ghiving you LO too much milk - personally I would keep him on full fat not semi-skimmed, as they need it for energy (even tho you say he is chunky).
My LO (almost 2) only has a milk at night now (9 oz+), but has it on cereals & puddings etc.
He may not need the morning bottle tho, so if you think he is a little 'chunky' maybe drop that one!!
