    My LO is 14 weeks old today, I don't know how much she weighs, but shes a little chunker!!
    She still eats every 2-3 hours, And Still once in the middle of the night, I don't think she would eat in the middle of the night though if I left her in bed with me, cause she was sleeping til 6 am just a couple weeks ago, and now she wakes up like 2 hours after I put her down, Cause she wants to be in bed with me, And shes now smart enough to know I'll get her and Bring her to bed with me, But then she needs to eat to get back to sleep, And then she sleeps the rest of the night, And If I lay in bed til 8 she'll sleep til 8, If I get up at 6 am shes up like 10 minutes later............man how does she know I'm gone.
    And the girl will not take a bottle, She did like 2 weeks ago, But again shes getting to smart, and she now refuses, But I am lucky enough right now to be home with her, But I will not give up going out with DH once every couple weeks, so she'll have to go hungry for a few hours if she doesn't want the bottle, I feel a little guilty the other day we were out for 6 hours, and she didn't eat, but then again, Its not often, and DH and I need time together without the LO's.

    How many weeks is your little one?: 3 months, 4 days
    How much does he or she weigh?: 13.5
    How many times a day does he or she eat now?: Oodles. I can't keep count but at least 10-15. She sleeps 10-12 hours a night, so she does a lot of cluster feeds when she gets up and before bed.

    Ladies who have gone back to work....What kind of directions did you leave for daycare regarding milk handling/feeding? My MIL will be the main daycare and I'm not sure how much detail to leave her. I want to make sure she's ok, but I don't want to appear too bossy and retentive, ykwim? I know she'll go through a learning curve as she gets to know Erin's signals, but do you give them advance warning about those you know or just let them learn on their own?

    How many weeks is your little one?: Sam will be 16 weeks Saturday
    How much does he or she weigh?: He is almost 12 lbs (hopefully will be 12 by the weekend). He's pretty long for his weight, so he's not a chubby guy.
    How many times a day does he or she eat now?: He usually eats 7 times a day, about every three hours. When he sleeps late, we might only get 6 feeds in, but that's risky as far as sleeping through the night. I do a dream feed between 11 and midnight, and then he USUALLY sleeps until 6 or 7. He was waking at 4:30, but I don't think he really needed to eat then because he never ate well at his next feeding. So, I just finished breaking him of that habit, and he seems happy to go until 6 or 7. This morning it was 7:30! Yay Sam!

    does anyone know how much BM babies are supposed to be drinking around this time? Gracie is only drinking 20-25oz a day now bc she sleeps 12 straight hours at night. You think this is enough?


    And in terms of leaving instructions, I just put she eats roughly every 3 hours and to just go by her cues. Also, making sure she knows to heat the bottle up in warm water and not in the microwave or by boiling it.

    Breastfed babies generally never consume more than 30 oz total in a 24 hour period (for the duration of their BF lives). Most take between 4-6oz per feeding (typically closer to 4oz). I think you are just fine -- if she was hungry, she would take more.
