At 7 months of age, how many ounces of bm should be consumed a day?

I don't know that there's any amount of BM a baby "should" be consuming at 7 months. As long as your baby is meeting milestones and having plenty of wet diapers, and your pediatrician isn't concerned about your baby's growth, I don't think there's any reason to try to make a 7 month old drink more or less BM.

My daughter is 7.5 months and she will drink anywhere from 20-28oz a day. Usually right on 24oz. My ped. (who obviously knows zero about breastmilk) told me she should be on AT LEAST 24oz a day nearer to 32oz would be better - but she was basing that of off formula recommendations and they cannot be compared.
