Re: Help me with advice for a new mama back to work at 4 weeks
Here's a great article about how to bottlefeed a breastfed baby. 7-8 ounces is WAY too much for a baby to be drinking. Even for an older baby that would be too much. I think the first step would be to make the bottles smaller, like 2-3 ounces at the most. Feed baby one bottle and if she wants more, give her another ounce or two. Make sure you're using slow-flow nipples, burp frequently and take lots of breaks. Try to mimic nursing as closely as possible.
