Thanks, all for your responses and help.
Yes, LO is still getting up 1-3x per night but typically not nursing a full feed. Sometimes (more especially the first wake up) he will take a little more, but I've taken to not offering both breasts over night so as to gently encourage night weaning, also unlatching him perhaps a few moments before he might truly want. Usually he nurses a few minutes, I lay him down, he adjusts a bit and goes back to sleep.
Work situation has been going on for a few weeks now, but baby has been fed bottles before (date nights, errands, etc.).
Yes, parents and husband are doing pacing as much as they know how - holding bottle so nipple is more horizontal and not totally full of milk, giving him little "breaks," not encouraging him to drink and drink. I've asked that they also "switch sides" which I'm not sure is happening. @lli*maddieb, how often should one do the technique you mention (let all milk drain out of nipple and wait for baby to signal he wants more)? Every 3 minutes? 5 minutes?
I agree that perhaps an "ounce limit" is in order to try other comfort measures to see if milk is being used as a "go-to." But not sure what that limit should be?
