My dd is 15 months, she is now down to just one bf per day, in the morning (feeds about an hour, sometimes lnger) should I be giving her extra cows milk too? Shes an excellent eater, definately healthy!

They're meant to have about a pint a day, including dairy from food as well.

I give my dd cups of milk during the day which she just has a few sips of at the time, but she also eats yogurts, and has two or sometimes three bowls of cereal in the morning.

Even though she breastfeeds for so long, it doesn't mean she is necessarily getting a lot of milk, because its a lot of comfort now rather than feeding.
