32 ounces- ish: Something roughly like 32 ounces a day is typical. Is your baby growing ok? Breastfed babies do get "lean" around a year of life, and then remain lean for the rest of their lives, so that is a great thing you are doing for her. Be sure and have a one year well check to evaluate her growth and development overall.

Calories : Most babies by one year have tripled their birth weight. That is your goal. Calorie wise a one year old of average weight is eating about 1000 calories per day. This comes as 3-4 solid meals a day and 3-4 bottles of formula. At one year babies can switch to regular milk if they are growing. If your baby is less in weight or calories continue formula. See your doctor for further advice.
