Re: Worried...LO eating too much???
Nope. You can't overfeed a breastfed baby. You CAN give baby too much in a bottle, which is probably why your pediatrician gave you a limit for the bottle (that is about right, too, most babies will only need 2-4 ounces at a time). Babies can self regulate when nursing, they can cut themselves off, take breaks, slow down or speed up their suck. This sets them up to recognize their body's cues from the beginning (which may be one reason breastfeeding reduces the chances for your child to become obese in the future). With the bottle the flow is the same no matter how baby sucks and the bottle giver also has control as far as encouraging baby to finish off the bottle. The other issue with the bottle is that babies have a strong urge to suck and at the breast they can comfort suckle and only get a tiny amount of milk or no milk at all. They can't do that with a bottle. So it's possible that your baby wasn't still hungry, but she was still needing to satisfy that urge to suckle. Whatever the case you did the right thing by putting her to your breast to let her satisfy the need, whichever one it was.
Here's a helpful article about bottle feeding a breastfed baby. You might find it helpful to read yourself and maybe share it with your baby's care provider when the time comes. There are some good tips about how you can more closely mimic the nursing routine while bottle feeding.
