    Yea, lots of times I assume the DCP just prop the baby up with the bottle. Of course it gets eaten, because the little guys just keep sucking away. Eh. Better he eat the breastmilk than not. The total amount you are sending is good though.

    Glad to help. I firmly believe I never would have made it to a year without this forum. Glad you are here!

    And if she is pumpiung 15oz in two sessions she is doing great! I don't think she needs an extra session. I agree 5 3oz bottles.

    Way too lazy for formula

    Shelly - But, can she keep up the 15 oz per day with only two pump sessions? I hope so but they time she isn't getting to pump may cause her supply to drop.
    I also agree with he smaller 3 oz bottles. Be sure to tell your dcp to NEVER EVER combine the bottles.

    15 oz is great, but that it is not likely to stay at that level forever. I'd suggest adding a session by car pumping on the way to work or in the way home when supply starts dropping off a bit.

    That's what I was getting at, but I wasn't being very clear. My apologies.
