If you give your LO a bottle (BM or formula) how much are they taking and how often?
I go to a night class once a week and am gone for 4 hours. The first week back I left 4 oz of BM total and DS3 only took 2oz (I was only gone 3 hours). Last night I left 5.5oz and he took 4oz over the entire 4 hours. He was screaming for 20 min before I got back since he was so hungry and DH didn't see the extra 1.5oz of BM I had left :roll: but that is another story. Its so hard to guess how much to leave since that is the only time we use a bottle and he nurses all other times. Anyway I hate pumping and more hate dumping milk that isn't used since its frozen until we need it and can't be refrozen. I guessing at least 1 to 1.5oz per hour I'm gone for now. What do you all think? I nurse up until I leave and right when I get home.
