Bottle feeding - how much Rss

I have recently started mixed feeding, formula bottles during the day & breast at night (I intend on weaning completely in the coming weeks) & am wondering how often I should offer a bottle. My baby is 6 months old & hasn't ever drank more than 200ml. The tin says 250ml 3-4 times a day. At the moment I am feeding morning, afternoon & before bed & then breastfeeding when she wakes at night. Should I give her another bottle at some stage during the day?
There is a really simple rule of thumb: In the first 4 to 6 months when your baby is not yet eating any solids you should be offering 2,5 ounces of formula per pound of body weight each day. And dont give your baby more than 32 ounces of formula in a single day.

Hope this helps you Lisa!
