How many ounces does your baby take via bottle?

Little dude slept pretty good last night so I finally pumped this morning.

My guy is 4 weeks on Tuesday and he's eating about 4oz every feeding and eating every three hours.

Thank you! I pumped 3oz. I'll try and get another ounce today.

We are at 4 weeks and I am BF and usually pumping at night. He does anywhere from 3-5oz.

Alasdair's starting to develop routines, I think - he has a couple really huge meals and a bunch of smaller ones. His meals range between 1 and 6 ounces. He tends to eat more from the bottle than the breast, I think. Anyway I end up pumping what's left after he nurses all day and then he'll eat everything I pumped right before bed. He's also been sleeping much better.

The key for me in pumping is to use breast massage/squeezing to maximize what I get out - the pump is less efficient than a baby for emptying the breast, so it helps keep supply up to assist the pump and empty the breast as much as possible. There have been times when I have pumped 8 oz in a sitting.

What sort of pumping schedule do you use? Do you pump instead of feed or pump for a few minutes after feeding? I think I'm ready to have my husband start giving a bottle, but not sure how to start....

I feel for any of you who have to use the pump! I plan to avoid it entirely this time.. I'm so happy that Micah is nursing well, after having never gotten my daughter to latch and pumping for 7 months last time I never want to touch a pump to my skin again!

Considering the size of an infant's stomach, we only give Colton 2 oz at a time. He eats every 1-3 hours and mostly at the breast. Every now and then we have to give a bottle though. I've noticed that if we give him more than 2 oz he spits up much much more even with multiple burpings.

OH btw... there's a pumping board I'd love to see it come alive. Right now it's pretty quiet.

With DD I would pump one side every morning after she ate. We used them for when I wanted to go out without the baby or at bedtime if DH wanted a turn.
I'm not sure what I'm going to do this time around.

Cool, thanks. I'll take a look at the pumping board, too.

I love the ability to have a bottle for long trips outside but dang it's annoying to clean this stuff!

We give anywhere between 2.5-4 oz. Sometimes she's good at 2.5 but sometimes I give her three and she flips out for that extra oz.

Oh and 4 oz will knock her out for a few hours

I plan to pump on occasion but we are still trying to establish a good milk supply here, so he's constantly on the breast (no paci or bottle) for now.
I am beat! LOL!
