There is no set number of breast feeds a child should have per day (except a newborn which should be having around 10-12 a day).

The breast is for milk and for comfort and for thirst and many of the benefits of breastfeeding are not from the milk itself - for example the jaw development and teeth alignment from the way the baby has to suck etc.

At this age your baby is fairly well established on solids and having about 3 meals a day and possibly a snack in the morning or afternoon as well. However, breast milk is still the most important nutrition for baby up until a year, so baby should continue to be fed on demand for nutritional purposes and then be offered meals at meal times (it helps for staring a pattern to the day for when baby is a toddler).

AFter a baby is a year old and solids become the more important part of their nutrition, they naturally cut back on breastfeeds and are just really sipping here and there when they are thirsty or want to go off to sleep and so on. The milk is still very important for providing antibodies against illness, and of course the longer mom breastfeeds the better her breasts recover from pregnancy and the lower her risk of breast and ovarian cancer - never mind all the wonderful benefits for baby.
