How often do you BF at the mo? With my DD I Bf till 13 months but probably by about 10 months I only Bf once in the morn and once before bed. We got to that point quite easily as I dropped the 11 AM feed and replaced it with drink in a beaker and solid snack, then a little later we replaced the 3pm feed with drink in a beaker and solid feed. Then we just replaced the nightime BF with a bottle of milk and the morning one with solids.
I think if you are BF a lot then the guidelines are to drop one feed every 3 days. Hope that helps. The NCT BF advice line may be able to help more.
