How much in each bottle for DC?

Daycare wants me to bring my milk in the bottle. I have no clue what my 15.5lb 10 week old consumes. I have tried to feed him occassionally from the bottle, but he takes all sorts of amounts.
I was going to do the 1 oz per hour rule, but I don't know if that means I put all the milk in one big bottle for the day or in multiple bottles.

Divide it into 2 hour increments. 2 ounce bottles every two hours. Give it take. If crying happens after the bottle is done, they need to try several soothing tactics. I've actually ALWAYS found a way to soothe my daycare babies without more milk. Effort is all that was needed!

2ounce bottles premade.
