This weekend I'm going to the doula workshop so I have a small stash of BM going. I think I have something like 6 or 7 bags, 3 oz each. If she nurses every 3-4 hours Kate would drink 4 of those in the time I'm gone during the day. But I'm freaking out that she'll want more than I have! What if she misses me and therefore just wants to eat all day?

Kate has taken a bottle all of twice in her 4 and a half months. Even though we haven't used a bottle often she still takes it fine, so I'm not worried about that. I just don't know how to translate nursing into onces per feeding or how many bottles a day. Especially since it's not routine for us, I'm wondering if she will want more than normal just because she misses nursing and will want to comfort suck. I told DH to use her binki if he knows she's eaten and is full.

Any help?

Thank you Kiliki for my wonderfull siggie!
