I'm in my fifth week back at work, and suddenly my nanny thinks I'm not leaving enough milk (unfortunately, my freezer stash is all gone).
I pump 3x a day and get about 10.5-11 ounces. I then pump 1-2 ounces before I go to bed (2-3 hours after DD's last feeding). So a total of 11.5 - 13 ounces per day.
DD eats 6-7 times a day. She nurses in the morning, has 3-4 bottles while I'm at work, nurses when I get home and then again before she goes to sleep.
When I first started working, my nanny was giving her 3 or 4 ounce bottles three times a day. I checked Kellymom.com's calculator, and this seems accurate. However, now my nanny says it's not enough milk and she's giving her an extra 2 ounces later in the day. Or sometimes she splits the third bottle into three 2 ounce feedings (which doesn't seem right to me).
I guess I'm just looking for reassurance. I really want to make it to four months without supplementing. Truthfully, I'd love to make it to six months without supplementing, but I'm trying to set short term, reasonable goals. However, I'm getting worried that I'm leaving my baby hungry.
What do you think? Overall, she's a really good-natured baby. She has tummy aches/gas almost every day, though mylicon seems to help. And she's been STTN since she was two months old (I know, I'm very lucky!)
TIA for your thoughts and opinions.
