How many milk feeds should my baby have. He is 9 months old, and I breastfeed him.

My other 2 never breastfed so long, so I am totally unsure. He eats 3 meals a day, and I give him water and rooibos inbetween. And snacks. The sleep sense book sugests 3 milk feeds.

Remember, milk is still the most important part of nutrition before one year of age. If you feed on demand, you should be fine.
