Extended BF nutrition req's-Help or links?

Hello ladies.
This is the first baby I've bfed past 12 months so I have some questions. Maybe you have answers or links for me.

Salem is nursing about 9 times in 24 hours, but I'm hoping to cut out 2 of the night feeds SOON. He eats bits of meals and snacks when we do. I give him about 4-6 ounces of water and sometimes 1-2 ounces of juice each day. He doesn't eat much meat and I'm just slowly introducing cheese and yogurt.

Does this sound ok? I mean, is he getting enough fat from bfing?
If I give him some yogurt does it have to be whole milk or would it be ok for lowfat (we're talking 1 oz)?

Do you think 6 ounces of water is too much or just fine? I don't want him to miss out on fat/nutrients. We all drink lots of water in this family, though.

Anyway, I'm just looking for reassurance.
