Intro and Feeding question

I have been a long time lurker on this board and have finally decided to join the conversation!  My LO will be 3 months on Saturday.  I started back to work this week and work 12 hour shifts.  I have been EBF and giving BM in a bottle 2-3 times per week.  I was wondering how much and how often your LO are eating while at daycare? 

Re: Intro and Feeding question

  • My mom takes care of DD when I'm at work. I usually work 8 til 4, and during that time she usually has 3 bottles, between 3 and 4 oz each.

    I also work 12's and drop off E with my MIL at 630am and I get home at 830pm. The first week I think she ate around 22oz during the day, but this week she's only taking about 16oz. Kind of all over the place.

  • My LO a glutton and has been eating 4 to 5 ounces since he was about a month. So I leave about 5 ounces his intake in one sitting for every 3 hrs plus 2 to 3 oz just in case. So far it's worked pretty well. I also did a test run and left him in day care for a day while I was at home. Let me get some stuff done before going to work as well as figure out how much milk I needed to leave.

  • Welcome! My DD eats 4 oz bottles every 3 hours. So during my work day she eats 3 times, totaling 12 oz.

    This is us. Some days it's like he is boycotting the bottle. Other days it's like it's all he wants to do all day long.

     I work 12's also but dh brings LO during my lunch hour so there's no telling how much he drinks from me during that time.
