I never allow a parent to decide how much breast milk I give and when. I have them bring a jug of milk daily and I feed on demand as much as they want to fill their bellies. The guidelines above are spot on with my experience with that age group and the amount they drink with the exceptions of the ones who are nipple attached all night and drink all night long. They usually have less at the around 9 am feeding and then increase at pre nap and after nap.
