I'm curious on those that bottle feed BM do you know how many oz they are eating each time and how long between feedings are they going? I have no idea with Zack so I was wondering what the normal oz are around 3 months old. He goes at least 3 hours between feedings sometimes longer.

Ellianna nurses around 7:15. She then wants another 3 ounces between 8:30 and 9:00. She generally then takes a nap until 12:30. She then wants 5 ounces every 2 hours.

Rory gets 4oz every 3 hours until he gets on his pump at night. I'm running into a problem here because I used to pump close to 6oz each time and now I'm down to 2oz. I only pump every 4 hours with a larger gap at night so that I can sleep. So I only pump 5 times a day. I was trying to reduce my pumps so that I could quit but we put Rory on straight formula for his night feeds and he got majorly constipated and was in pain, bloating, etc. so I've stayed at 5 pumps to that the majority of what he eats is still breast milk.

I'm going to add some pumps in today and on Tuesday while my toddler is out with others to see if that will help stimulate a larger supply.

'Scuse the bad typing, please. 'Breast is Best' but not when browsing the internet!

Morgan doesn't eat as much during the day when she's with my MIL as I would like. I send her with three 5oz bottles and there's usually one left, and that's after me being gone about 10 hours. Of course then she'll marathon nurse when I get home. She only wakes up once during the night to nurse, if at all. My supply has also dipped recently, and now I'm pumping pretty much exactly what she needs. Still it freaks me out. I liked having extra, just in case.

Wow - so Ellianna must be a little porker actually she is long and not really chunkey - so just eats a lot. That may be due to her sleeping through the night and not eating then.
