My dd is 3 months and stays at daycare from 7:45 until 5:15 everyday. I send 16 oz of breast milk with her each day and am able to pump that much each day at work. She has started eating 3 - 8 oz bottles each day at daycare. That's 24 oz in 9 1/2 hours. I have had to start supplementing one 8 oz bottle of formula just to get her through the day. I wanted her to be exclusively on bm, but I can't keep up with her. It breaks my heart to have to give her formula.
I breastfeed her right before we leave for daycare each morning and we only live 5 minutes from the babysitter. She usually eats around 6:30 in the evenings and seems to cluster feed in the evenings eating every 1 1/2 to 2 hours. She doesn't sleep through the night yet, but some nights she'll sleep from 9:00 until 4:00. Is she eating too much? I just really don't know what is normal at this point. Does anyone else have a lo that eats this much?
I have to share this too.... she started rolling over yesterday. It is so cute to watch her. It is so exciting when they start reaching milestones.
Thanks for any insight you might have.
