How much milk should my 1 year old be getting? Fatty McRunnerPants 2 kids; 4 angel babies; Clearlake, California 59161 posts

My son just turned a year old and I just wanted to know if this was a normal pattern for this age. He gets 5oz's of milk with his breakfast, 8oz's with lunch, 5 oz's with dinner and then 8oz's in the wee hours of the morning (after he's been asleep for about 8-10 hours). He eats 3 meals a day, two snacks and he also nurses on demand (lately about 1-3 times a day). Is this normal?

Mikaila's ped told us 12-16 oz a day of whole milk. She also eats 3 regular meals a day and snacks off and on..

I'd like to know this too. My 11 month old daughter nurses when she first wakes up, drinks about 4 ounces in the morning, 4 ounces before her early afternoon nap, 4 after her nap, and 4 in the evening. It is all breastmilk though not whole milk. She gets 3 meals a day and usually a snack. Sometimes she will nurse for a few minutes here and there if she wants to, and sometimes she wiill nurse herself to sleep. I think your son sounds like he is on a normal pattern, but I'm no expert!
