Mine (14mo daughter) still drinks between 18 - 28oz, typically about 22oz per day.

My son turned one today!! And he's still not too big on solids ... he gets 4 bottles per day, at 4-5 ounces each. So a total of 16-20 oz per day. I'd say he averaged around 25-28 oz a few months ago. Hope that helps! Amie

My dd is just about 15 months old and currently drinks 15 oz BM daily (3 x 5oz bottles) and has been at this amount for quite some time (maybe was at 20 oz at 10 months). The past few days she has started refusing her bottle at naptime so if this trend continues she will be down to 10 oz daily. She drinks lots of water and drinks cows milk in her sippy at mealtimes. Your gal sounds like she is right on track. I have always fed on demand and trusted that dd knows her body and what she needs...and when she decides she doesn't want a bottle she is pretty adament about it, lol :)
