Re: 2.5 month old eating 6oz...being over fed?
That's a long workday. 9 hours at work, and the baby doesn't generally eat right before he goes to daycare, so he's actually not nursing for around 10.5-11 hours. Go by the 1.5 oz per hour rule, and it suggests that the 16 oz your DCP is asking for is probably approximately right- though perhaps paced bottle feeding and swapping in a pacifier could reduce his intake a bit. If you can find a way to nurse the baby closer to 8 am, it might also reduce his intake at daycare, but obviously this depends on how far your daycare is from your workplace. Nursing as soon as you pick baby up at 5 pm might also help, if your DCP is willing to keep the last bottle of the day small and slow.
How long are you at work each day? From 8 - 5 .. I feed him around 6-630 am before he goes to daycare. Some days I will try to top him off at 7 if I have time before I leave.
