My son is 3 1/2 weeks old, and I have been exclusively pumping and giving him EBM in a bottle and supplementing with formula as needed since he was 3 days old. He typically feeds every 3 hours during the day. When he takes a bottle of EBM the amount he eats is 3 oz. When I give him a feeding of formula I give the same amount, but he seems to get hungry sooner than he does after the EBM feedings.
I am wondering if this is normal? Is EBM more filling that formula and if so how much more formula should I give during a formula feeding to keep him fuller longer?
Also wondering how often others who are exclusively pumping tend to pump and if you supplement. I try to pump every time he eats during the day, but my supply still doesnt keep pace with his increased demand, so I've started a routine of giving EBM every other feeding.
