When you feed baby pumped milk from a bottle, how mamy ozs is baby drinking? Jacob will usually only take 3 ozs no matter how long it has been since he has ate. Jackson was drinking 5 or 6 ozs at a time by now. And I feel like Jacob will drink more from the boob than a bottle.

Thank you *Kiliki* for my beautiful siggy

Sofia always has 4 ounces per feeding
Sometimes she will even want an extra ounce like 20 minutes later too.... She is 4 weeks old. I exclusively pump and bottle feed.

*Thank you AlexKatieAidenMommy for my awesome siggie*

Usually 4 oz unless she just wanted an ounce worth of snack.

She will take 3-4oz. She gets bottlefed about 1-2 times a week now. Just to keep her familiar with the bottle.

4oz. He would probably take more, but I only pump to have milk for DH to give if he fusses while I am out for a short time right now.

She usually has 4-6oz depending on when she last ate and how hungry she is.

Aubrey really only gets bottles to top her off when she's cluster feeding in the evenings right before bed. She will generally drink whatever I pumped the night before from one side... 1.5 to 3 oz. She is always ravenous when she starts the bottle, but then she may or may not actually finish the bottle before falling asleep in DH's arms. I don't know how much she would eat for a full meal.

I don't know this week, but last week she was taking up to 5oz at a feed in the NICU at less than a week old! Yikes!

Kate never took more than 4oz, and it was usually 3.

2 IVF babies and 1 surprise!

I would guess Liam is taking 3 if he does one side and 6 if he does both because that is what I pump in the morning when I produce a lot but I havent given him a bottle so i dont know for sure.
