Have no idea, but would be interested in any answers.
At 11 months, my dd had 3 breastfeeds and about 200ml of milk with her cereal for breakfast.

At 15 months she still has about the same amount but I've noticed she spends less time on breast. Wondering if she is gradually weaning herself off breast and I should stop offering.

that is more than what he is having. only two breastfeeds a day. no mil with cereal,but lots of cheese. he tends toeat everything you offer him, and everything he sees anyone eating, he wants. we call him a little greedy piggy. smile

up to 1 year the recommended minimum is about 20oz. From 1 year the recommended minimum is around 12oz.

seona, does that translate into three breastfeeds?

I bottlefed and ds was down to 2 feeds a day by 10 1/2 months. You can also make up their intake by using milk in cereal, in foods and cooking and also other dairy products e.g. cheese, yoghurt, etc.
