I feel that is WAY too much.
My mom gives her a bottle whenever she cries ... but is it possible that she is crying because of a stomach ache? too much milk in her stomach?
And she just needs to suck but shoving a bottle will force milk even more?
I don't know what to do =[
According to an article I read on KellyMom babies eat on average 25 ounces of BM a day after the first month until solids are introduced. Daily the actual amount will fluctuate from say 19 to 30 ounces, but you could use 25 as the benchmark.
