Re: Adding Formula?

FWIW i tried the advise that keen suggested and I ended up with one pissed off baby. She was starving and screaming after an hour with the 2.5oz. When I went back to 3.5oz she ate every 2.5 to 3 hours..

Both DCP and Dh. Said the 2.5 ounces did not work. I dont believe they are over feeding her. Her eating pattern is pretty much the same when I am home and only nursing her.

How does you LO eat at night. I noticed an increase inneed during the day/morning when DD started sleeping all night.

I figure if I pump 4oz out of one breast and she only eats from one side at a time she is probably getting similar amount.

I would add the one ounce of formula.

All three of mine have taken 4 oz every three hours by 8 months.

Follow your instincts.
wife and mom-- no other special labels. Just trying to do the best I can.
