Re: SNS/Lact-Aid Mamas... Counting Ounces

How wonderful you are breastfeeding your adopted child

Babies usually take in about 1 oz per hour on avg. You can try reducing the amount in the SNS and see if baby still seems satisfied. You can also stop the flow at various points of your nursing session and listen for active swallowing even try a feed or two without it and see how it goes.

Remember that breastfeeding is so much more than just providing human milk, SNS or not
