Re: should i still be bf 8 times/day @ 11 m?
Until a year, breastmilk is supposed to make up the majority of a baby's diet. 25 oz a day might be a little higher than absolutely necessary for breastmilk to be your child's majority source of nutrition, but I think it's not that far off. I personally would continue to nurse 8x per day until a year, and beyond that if both you and baby are willing. There's no reason why you should be cutting back on nursing unless you are eager to wean.
Around a year, you can probably start phasing out the donor milk supplements and just nurse. However, you do want to pay careful attention to your child's diet at that point, since "dairy" is an important part of a toddler's diet. The requirement isn't for dairy per se, but rather for calcium and protein. Like it or not, whole cow's milk is usually the easiest way to meet a child's dairy requirement when mom isn't able to meet it herself via nursing. But you can meet the dairy requirement in other ways, for example by offering whole milk yogurt or cheese. You can even do it without using any cow's milk products at all- but it takes a lot more effort to get the right proportions of fat and calcium into a picky toddler's diet- and lots of toddlers are quite picky!
