I've been a nazi about how much my DD is allowed to have when I am gone as at first my DH was stuffing her with BM when I was gone. I was having a hard time keeping up with her consumption of milk as I don't seem to be able to pump out nearly as much as she would take if given.
How much are your babies taking a day? She's getting 4 to 5 oz bottles every 3 hours and that is adding up to about 23 to 25 ozs a day. I'm a flight attendant so she doesn't get to nurse at night when I'm working so it's a bit different from the norm. There is no reverse cycling happening. She's 5.5 months, and her weight gain has really slowed down. She doesn't appear to be overly hungry after a period of time has passed and her brain registers that her tummy is full finally. But when she gets her bottle apparently she slurps it down and cries for more. I've not seen it in action, but that is what my DH tells me and my mom. I don't want my baby to he hungry, but I've been a nazi because I was convinced my DH was over feeding her giving her a 5 to 6 oz bottle of BM at 4 months. Sometimes when I pump I only get 2 ozs. :S I know pumping isn't a good indicator of supply and she doesn't cry after nursing when I'm home, but I don't know how much she gets when she's nursing.
Help. I'm all insecure and doubting myself.
