    Default Is this normal? Fast feeding

    I just fed pumped milk for the first time today. It took me 20 min double pumping to get about 4 oz. My baby nearly finished the bottle in a couple of minutes? I used slow flow lansinoh nipple with dr brown bottle. Seems way fast

    yep, normal, because babies can't control the flow on bottles like they can nursing. also why people tend to over-feed with bottles. this might be helpful: http://kellymom.com/bf/pumpingmoms/f...ottle-feeding/

    oh, ps - 4 oz is a normal-to-big pumping session! just for you to gauge for the future.

    2 oz is still really typical - i'd prbably call that small-to-normal pumping.
