    Default How much should she take?

    My 3 mth old is taking one bottle at daycare. I nurse her right before I drop her off at 7am and I nurse her when I pick her up right before noon. They give her a bottle around 10am. She eat 9 times a day. How much should she be getting in a bottle?

    My 12 week old takes 4 oz in a bottle about every 3 to 4 hours or so

    Every baby is different. Some are fine with smaller amounts more times througout the day and others do better with larger amounts a few times a day. Having said that, I think 3 oz is a decent amount per bottle. The last thing you want is to send too much and having it go to waste or getting thrown out.

    yup and your not gone to long. As baby gets older they might just wait for you to return and sleep most the time your gone.
