LO is 3.5 months now and in daycare from 8:30-5:30 (or so...)
He started with 6 bottles, 2oz each (we were guessing - that's what he was taking at home when I went somewhere and DH watched him). He seemed fine to start and then one of the teachers said she thought he was still hungry after one bottle. So she was doubling up his first bottle - giving him a second bottle less than 20 minutes after his first. And asking me to send in more in each bottle. So I upped the bottles to 2.5oz each (25% jump) and he started spitting up more after each bottle. But they're still telling me he's hungry - I'm frustrated that they're not listening to me and frustrated because I'm at my limit of what I can pump and send - I have no more milk TO send!
This whole topic is frustrating on so many levels - I think they're overfeeding him, they think I'm starving him - and there doesn't seem to be a middle ground on any of it! I've talked to them about how to bottle feed a breastfed baby (he's the only breastfed baby at the center - and I'm under the impression it's been a long time since they've had one there), I've talked to them about burping him more, slowing down, etc. But I suspect they haven't changed anything on their end.
So - besides the obvious trust issue (we are trying to find a new daycare but it's a struggle commuting/working/etc and finding time to research, interview and tour) - any suggestions on how to handle this? I know my little guy doesn't eat much, he's a snacker - when it's just me all day, he eats 10-11 times a day/night. Kellymom.com has a milk calculator for oz in each bottle and it was around 2oz. I'm just at a loss here! My next step is to go to a lactation consultant and do a weighted feed to see how much he eats when it's straight from the tap...
Ok - thanks for reading this far!!
