Is my 9mo getting enough milk?

My dd started weaning at 6 months and is doing very well. She loves her food, and is eating a wide variety of food.

However, she's dropped her feeds quite quickly and I'm a bit concerned that it's too soon for that. I bf her first thing, the mid morning feed has gone, very little mid afternoon, and a big feed at bedtime. She sometimes feeds once overnight, but not every night.

She has porridge and cereal with milk, yogurt, cheese and Philadelphia cheese, and is happy drinking water.

Her older brother was still full-on with his bfeeds at this age - is she getting enough?

If she is fed on demand then I would say yes, she is regulating her own intake and will take exactly what she needs.

Is she still having wet/dirty nappies and otherwise growing healthy and happy?

Thank you so much for your quick reply! Yes, she's fed on demand and has lots of wet/dirty nappies. Her weight appears to be fine, and she's followed the same curve since she was tiny.

So, ok to carry on as we are, do you think?

I think you're doing good, like you said, she's having other forms of dairy and drinks water.

Very reassuring - thank you!
