I know it's not as much as it could be, but for several reasons I am only able to breastfeed my ten month old consistently in the morning and in the evening before bed.
I occasionally can squeeze in an extra feeding in the middle of the day.
On the weekends, I'd say she nurses 3-5 times in a day.
During the week, between feedings, she eats solids well (healthy organic foods) and she drinks 1-2 bottles of goat's milk (not raw, store-bought).
Should I be concerned about her not getting enough breastmilk for brain/body growth? (She seems to be thriving just fine...)
Would you be concerned? If so, what would you do to remedy it, if more breastfeeding was not an option?

She is not night nursing? If not I would look into a breastmilk replacement, not just plain goat milk, for at least a few more months. There is a the Weston A Price Foundation website which shows you what needs to be added to the milk to make it an acceptable substitute.
