Re: How much milk to send

Each baby is going to be different but here is what I do.

DD is 3.5 months. I leavve 3 4oz bottles that she takes while I am at work. I went back to work at 8 weeks. I tried less sin each bottle since she was eating every two hours but the DD just got more frutraited and I ended up with a frustraited DH and DCP so I went back to the 3.5 to 4 oz. Both DCP and DH are good about offering other soothing but it doesnt always work.

I feed her between 4 and 5:30 depending on if she wakes jp or if I have to wake her up to eat before leaving for work.

She does most of her eating in the morning and eats about every two hours at home too. She STTN 95% of the time also.

I blovk feed so I pump the side she doesnt eat from each morning and pump twice at work.

On saturday ans Sunday I set my alarm for 4am and pump both sides and get about 10oz each day.
wife and mom-- no other special labels. Just trying to do the best I can.
