Is this normal for a baby of 6months to have dry nappies?

Hi, not sure if this is the right section to ask this question but here goes anyway... my little one is almost 6 months and in the last 3 weeks there have been 2 occassions where i have changed her nappy at 6ish(pm) and when woken for her 9.30pm feed her nappies have been completly dry!!!!!!

she is on 4 milk feeds a day (8am,12pm,4pm and 9.30pm and takes approx 140-210mls per feed)and 2 meals a day (breaky and dinner) we have just recently started water (not having it every day but drinks about 50-60mls through out the days she has it) .. is this normal for a baby of 6months to have dry nappies????? her other nappies thru the day are wet so i dont know where this is normal or whether i should be concerned.. i would love your advise..
thanks heaps

Answer: Hi Kim, I wonder if it is more common on the days when she has less formula? As her range of formula spans from 560mls to 840mls this may account for it. Below is a chart used to calculate a starting idea but remember it is just a guide. But it might help you with the average she might need for her weight.
