How often do you feed your 9 month old?

Am trying to decide whether to go on a hen do in a few months' time when my baby will be 9 months old. I would be away for 2 nights/3 days so would need to express enough to last that long plus express when I'm away to keep my milk supply up/avoid getting mastitis, so just wanted to find out how often they feed at that age

thanks

So much depends on the baby. My dd2 stopped breastfeeding in the day at around 9 months but was still feeding a lot from 7pm onwards.

Your dd will probably be on some solids by that stage so at least you have the option of leaving meals that she likes.

As regards the expressing a lot depends on how often your dd is feeding.

Meant to add when dd2 started refusing daytimes feeds I started her on formula morning, afternoon and evening so 3 feeds in the day.

She usually drank about 3-5 oz of formula each feed at 9 months.
