LO is 14 weeks and in DC from about 8am-530pm. He is also EBF and has been STTN for quite some time now. (Okay that's way too many acronyms, LOL) I've been keeping track of what he eats @ DC and it seems like he generally takes about 12-14 oz in that 8 hour span. Sometimes I nurse him on my lunch break but the timing of his feedings have made it such that I can't really do that very often any more (he has been eating at 11 am and then again at 1pm).
He recently had 2 back to back feedings of 3 oz, and this past weekend he sucked me dry to the point where I had to have DH give him a bottle of 3 oz to keep him satisfied!!
I am still pumping just enough (about 12-13 oz per day) to cover his daily feedings but concerned that we might be onthe verge of another growth spurt and wondering how to best prepare for this. He often will have his last feeding at 630 pm, go to bed at 8pm and then not eat again until 330 a.m. (6-7 hrs later). Should I pump in between that time, say at 9 or 9:30 pm to encourage my body to make more milk and also to keep up my freezer stash?
Also what are other 14 week old LOs eating nowadays? By the way, for reference, DS is 16 lbs 8oz last week and was 24.5 inches long last time he was measured, in case that makes a difference in terms of calorie needs and feedings. TIA!
