My daughter is about to turn 12 months. I still breastfeed 5 times a day (or pump at work and daycare gives her the bottle) plus 3 solid food meals and a snack. Around the 12 month mark, I would like to stop pumping at work and, therefore, will no longer be breastfeeding during the day. I understand that you can give 16 - 24 oz of cow's milk per day to supplement or replace breastmilk or formula. A couple of questions.
Will my milk supply dwindle so much that I can no longer give her morning (first thing when she wakes up) and evening (as soon as I get home) and bedtime feedings?
When my milk supply runs out or I/she weans, what do I give her when she first gets up? What do I give her before she goes to bed?
Will you please tell me what your 12 month old's typical food/drink schedule is like? I understand that not all babies are the same, but a reference point would be nice.
