    How much cow's milk to give 1 year old I'm still breastfeeding?

    I've made to the decision to continue with breastfeeding, but have cut way back to mostly 2 feeds a day. My baby is very good and doesn't really ask me for milk, and there have been the odd day where she's only had one feed, usually when we're out for a whole day and she falls asleep in the car for the night before I can give her the usual night time milk. Which I'm pretty pleased about, but then my sister pointed out that she still needs to have a certain amount of milk/calcium intake per day, and I don't know what that should be. I've read people give three cups of milk a day to their toddlers, so if I breastfeed twice a day, does that mean I still need to make her drink a cup of milk in the middle of the day?

    you can get calcium from things besides milk... cheese, yogurt, sesame seeds... all have lots of calcium.

    None. Dairy is not necessary at all. Plenty of other sources of calcium.
