Default starting milk

my ds will be 1 year next month and the ped told me to start giving him milk he said about 25 -30oz a day! is that right even when breastfeeding? right now he nurses about 6-8 time during the day and then at night before bed and a little bit during the night too.
how have you guys started milk and did the baby nurse less after starting it?

No real help here... I'm sure these ladies will be able to help, but that seems like an awful lot... especially since you are breastfeeding!

That does seem like a lot with breast feeding. You migth try introducing it one sippy cup at a time to see how much he actually wants.

I breastfed DS til he was 13 months and He only got 1 ... maybe 2 cups of milk a day after that.. He never took a bottle.

DD took about 18 oz. tops of milk a day..
