Re: Infant losing interest in BF
That is a huge amount of milk for a breastfed baby. Most nursing babies don't ever take more than 4-5 ounces at the very most and that is when they are older and have a growth spurt. Your baby only needs about 1-1.5 ounces for each hour you are away. I would talk to your caregivers about giving smaller bottles and make sure your nipples are slow flow, which mimics nursing better. Here's a really great article about bottle feeding a breastfed baby that you might want to share with your caregiver. And one about how much expressed breast milk a baby needs to put your mind at ease (and share with your doc if you feel the need ).
“We are not put on earth for ourselves, but are placed here for each other. If you are there always for others, then in time of need, someone will be there for you.”
