At 9 months, I'm planning on dropping to 3 pumps and was wondering what the average milk intake was for a 9 month old.

For a child who ISN'T yet having solids, the volume of EBM consumed per day would be roughly the same as when she was younger. So I've heard, and it proved to be true of my little one, who didn't take much interest in solids until about 15 months. The milk you produce for an older baby is higher-calorie than what you produced when she was young, so she doesn't need a larger volume.

Children who are on solids will vary quite a lot in how much milk they need, depending how much they eat!

You'll probably just have to try it and see. Sorry, not much help!

I agree with the pp.
