I gave my son breast milk at every meal and snack. I always had a sippy of water available for the rest of the day so he could drink as much as he wanted.

They can have breastmilk as often as they want. The nutrients in it are so good for your baby. In some countries they are EXCLUSIVELY breastfed for a couple years.

try mixing it with vitamin d milk atlease onces a day and see how she takes.. do half and half.. then if she does good try doing it more until you do it every 8 hours and each time put a little more vitamin d milk and a little less breast milk. That is how i did it

Hi C.,

I don't know if this will answer your question or not, but my son is 13 months old, and we offer him something to drink every 2 hours (or so). He drinks goat's milk and once or twice a day if we think of it, we offer him juice, too. He will not drink plain water, so we ocassionally "dilute" the goat's milk or juice with water.

I could not even begin to tell you how much he drinks. We trust him to drink what he needs to quench his thirst.
