Re: How much milk to send

My thoughts exactly. I was not happy when they told me she finished all her milk that day (11oz between 7:45 and 1pm) and then when I saw her feeding schedule on the checkout sheet.

I used the milk calculator and it looks like 4x4oz bottles are what she needs, so I'll keep sending that. I really don't want to send extra because they might just feed her.

I hadn't thought of keeping a frozen bag of milk there in case. We have to have our bottles all ready to go, they don't do bags, but I wonder if having an emergency bag would be good.

I only have 6 bags frozen left in my freezer. We went through sooo much wasted frozen milk in the first month because she wouldn't take a bottle at first, then I was just trying to figure out how much to send. Somehow I need to figure out how to increase that frozen stash. It makes me nervous!
