6-12 feeds depending on the day. Some short some long. Not much solid food being consumed for my guy. Or water. Just boobies!

My 9 month old DD had 5 milk feeds a day, but I dropped to 4 last night (no longer doing the 10.30pm dream feed).
I think she may also be wanting to drop the 11am feed, so she may be going to 3. I'm hoping the dream feed dropped will increase her enthusiasm for the 11am feed.

About 6x during the day and averages 3x each night
Each mothers storage capacity is different so every mum/bub combo will be different

Pfft! Who do they think they are saying that!
My baby is nearly 8 months and bf heaps. I offer it all the time. She feeds once a night, sometimes sleeping all night. She's happy, sleeping well and just thriving.

I take my hat off to you ladies. I would go flippin insane if my baby fed up to 12 times a day to be completely honest I would probably decide to stop BFing.

My 8 month old DD has at least 10 bf a day, I lose count of how frequently she feeds.

My 14 month old still has average 6 or 7 feeds in 24 hours thanks to 2-3 feeds during the night. Even more when sick or teething. But she also eats a good quantity and variety of food during the day and drinks water readily and is a very happy girl. Smaller amounts (milk or solids) just seem to suit her better or she seems to get indigestion. Until 6 months she was feeding 2 hourly during the day and sleeping through the night. Then when the day feeds stretched out to 4hours she started waking for feeds at night so as to still have the same number of feeds overall.
Glad you aren't letting the GPs comments bother you! There is definitely no one size fits all breastfeeding routine.

DD is 7 months. She feeds about 6/7 times a day. Roughly 7, 11, 1, 4, 6 and once or twice overnight. I might try cutting back a bit to get her to eat more solids as I want her to start sleeping better!

Thanks for all of the replies!
It seems from this (very limited!) sample of responses that the average is likely to be higher than 3 a day.
