Re: Had to give my baby formula for the first time :(
Mama, if he's taking 9 ounces in one sitting, your problem is not that you're not getting enough. It's that he's being drastically overfed. Your baby, at 2 months, shouldn't be eating more than 2-3 oz at a time. Most breastfed babies never take more than 4 ounces max, even at a year old or more. The general rule is 1-1.5 ounces for every hour you are away.
Here's an article about how much milk your baby needs when he is away from you.
Are your caregivers in the infant class familiar with caring for breastfed babies? Here's a great resource to share with them about how to bottle feed a breastfed baby. Maybe that will help them learn ways to feed less.
