I was just curious (again ) what everyone's done for breastfeeds during the day around 11 months? I'm unsure if I'm doing too much or just enough. I actually had a pediatric dietician appointment last week and asked her, in regards to nutrition, it not interfering with solids, etc and what her recommendation is and she just said it's up to me, that it's a personal choice since breastfeeding is comfort, drink, etc. I get that, but I just wanted her thoughts. Grrrrr.
I'm not sure when I'll be ready to wean him. I thought I'd stop at a year but we're nearly there and I don't think I'm ready!

I'm BFing my son 4 times during the day and once or twice over night. Now I'm back at work, I'm really trying to cut back. I'm over it! I'll try morning and night and as pp said, lots of other dairy during the day. Cows milk at 12 months

At 11 months I still demand fed- still a pretty big part of overall nutrition. I would say we averaged about 6-7 feeds a day by then.

I just fed on demand, neither of my babes showed much interest in solids until around 18 months so it was comforting to know they were getting all the good stuff from me. Still feeding on demand at 20 months now and starting to get the jack of it.
Personally I don't think you can feed too much when they are that age, they seem to self regulate well.

At 11mths both mine were demand fed but avg 5-7 feeds a day. I don't encourage too many solids till after 12mths old.

He usually has 4 during the day. When he wakes up, after morning nap, after afternoon nap and bedtime.
I won't go into overnight...😐
Morning, mid-morning and bedtime he definitely wants although mid-morning is usually very quick. Mid-afternoon he doesn't seem to care about. Sometimes I skip it, sometimes he does.
His diet in regards to solids is very good, the dietician was impressed .
I just wasn't sure if I should just be doing three feeds during the day. Morning, afternoon, bedtime.

At that age, I think my daughter had about 3-5.
She had just gone from ONLY feeding in the dark when half asleep, to sometimes asking when up and awake, so I was happy to oblige.
Completely up to you...you can do a scheduled 3 if you want, or stick with what you're doing. I'd say you didn't get any extra advice because it really is a personal decision, where pretty much any choice is a good one if you're happy with it.

Same as Atropos above. We fed a lot at that age.
