Re: So confused about what to do
I think I'd let her work out a schedule with baby on her own. He may want to eat more frequently if he's getting smaller bottles. But as a general idea probably around every 3 hours at this point so around 9ish, noonish, and 3ish with a small top up here and there if he wants it. You also have to take naps into account and work around that.
I found that regardless of when they last fed her my daughter used to want to nurse when we got home so I wasn't too hard on them about making her wait if she was hungry. The only time it really bugged me is if they were feeding her when I got there to pick her up, because they knew I was coming and would have only needed to hold her off a few more minutes.
I think the most a baby that age would get from the breast would be around 3-4 ounces per feeding, more or less depending on the mama's storage capacity and how long baby nurses.
