How much milk does your baby need? Does the volume of milk a baby needs per day to gain weight vary by age and by baby and by day (somewhere in the range of about 24-32 oz per 24 hours)? Yes! This guide adapted from the book, Breastfeeding and Human Lactation, shows the average milk intake per feeding for the first 6 months of a baby’s life. When solids are introduced, milk intake may slightly decrease but solids in the first year are still only meant to complement breastmilk, not replace it. ⁣

How much milk does your little one consume in a given feed?
