EBF to FF?

Have any of you weaned from BFing to FF? Curious how many oz your LO would take in a bottle? I am having a hard time getting enough (at least 20?) oz into LO a day. She tends to want 3 oz bottles but is starting to take 4 or maybe 5 oz bottles. Am I over feeding? How often and how much is your LO taking now if they are FF?

  • I went from ebf to ff about two months ago and my little one is now 7 mo. she will usually take a bottle every 3 hrs or so and will take anywhere from 68 oz
