does anyone else have an older baby on smaller bottles?
 
my 11.5 month old is still drinking 3-4 ounce bottles of bm when i'm away it seems really weird since dd1 was on 8 ounce bottles at like 6 months. just wondering?

My 9 mo takes 4 3oz bottles while I'm at work (gone almost 10 hours). She doesn't really seem to be interested in taking a larger amount fewer times. She really likes nursing though and nurses every 2 to 3 hours on days that I'm home too. So I'm thinking it's partly that she wants to be cuddled and get to suck even when I'm not home.

My dd has never gotten a bottle more than 4oz and she's 2.5 now. breastmilk is different than formula and I wanted my dd to eat frequently just like she nurses.

I think they call it "reverse cycling". They'll just eat enough to tide them over until moms around to bf again. My son never took more than a 6 oz bottle, even at 12 months old.

My DD never, ever drank more than 4oz EBM at a time. Even when the daycare tried to get her to take more, she never would. 3.5-4 was her max. I think some kids just prefer smaller amounts. DD is still a bird when when it comes to eating/drinking....she prefers to eat tiny amounts throughout the day.

Both my 2 never took more than a 4 oz bottle ever at daycare. My second would take a VERY full 4 oz bottle (so it was probably close to 5 oz), but I never even bought any 8oz bottles because they never seemed to want more at 1 feeding.
