Re: ?'s for those how ebp and/or pump while working

my ds would eat 2-3 oz per feeding at daycare between ages 3mo-8mo. strange eater too. daycare won't feed him from the same bottle more than once, so that was frustrating to figure out how many to pack and not wanting to waste that precious milk! we would sent 5 4 oz bottles and most frequently he'd come home with one full one (not used) and all the rest would have an ounce or so left. apaprently my dc standards said they couldn't dump out the breastmilk on site, so fortunately they'd put it back in the fridge and send it home with us. we'd combine the milk into a bottle for the next day (they'd freak if they knew that though!) making sure to put it in the front of the fridge or labeling it with a different colored marker so we'd know not to use it again if any was sent back home. now ds is with my mom for the summer and he's eating about 10-12 oz total during two bottle-meals in a 9 hour day (but he's 10 months and on 3 solid meals with snacks between).
hth mama! there's a breastfeeding support thread here too if you need more info or advice! :-)
