I feel so much better ladies thank you!!! her pedi told me she needs 6-8 oz per feeding now, and that's the biggest reason I've been fretting over it.

Often they look at # oz/day vs per feedings. If baby is gaining properly and peeing/pooing properly I wounding worry.
My sisters baby 3 months younger than mine was drinking WAY more per bottle than mine. But he was all bottle. Mine was mix nurse and bottle.

Re: Donor milk

You may not be able to get ahead that way but can you stay on top? To get ahead if helps to pump more frequently or try after nursing...

Your ped is wrong! He may be quoting for Formula, but not for BM...a BF'd baby never really needs more than 4 oz in a feeding.

Re: Donor milk

Wow that is a lot per feeding especially for a 4 month old. My 9 month old still only takes 4oz bottles.

4oz per pumping session is great.

Honestly I don't think you should ask for donor milk or if you do be very honest why you want it.-- I think you need to keep pumping, reduce the baby's bottles and see what happens. Technically you only need to stay on top of the pumping not get ahead.

to be perfectly honest if you posted this and requested donor milk I would not respond. I am/have been donating right now and I would have a hard time donating to you. I have been pumping like a crazy person at work and worked hard for my supply while working WOH full time. I happen to have a good freezer stash but it took a lot of hard work.

Re: Donor milk

The fact that you are doing your best to supply breast milk for your baby is inherently not selfish! You are doing your best to provide for your baby!
