Doc said that babies at her age only need 16-20 something oz per day of milk or formula (considering my daughter gets plenty of solids), so suggested if daycare wants to give her more formula, tell them water instead. So I did, and she gets maybe around 12 oz breastmilk and formula total for the day while she's at daycare. The rest of the feedings at daycare are solids and water and I nurse her at least 3x (usually more, but if we're busy, once when I get home, once to sleep, and at least once before I leave in the mornings). She still nurses around 8-10x on weekends, although that could be because I offer every two to three hours still.
