In brief: Variable
This is variable but a common question.
Generally infants don't need more than 32 oz of milk per day and this will decrease depending on how much food the infant eats. At a year many infants are taking about 15-20 oz per day in my experience. Some infants will eat more food than others but all will naturally adjust milk intake dependent on food intake.
