    Default How much expressed milk?

    Just curious - how much expressed BM does your LO take in one feeding? DS is 6w and can really suck it down!

    Both my dd's are/were the same - rarely take more than 4 oz in a sitting.

    My 6 month old gets 6 oz now. We left my mom to babysit her this past weekend -- she took 4 8oz bottles of my expressed milk in roughly 12 hours!! We use the 8oz playtex drop ins because the 4 oz we could squeeze 5oz into but it was rough (she's taken 5oz since around 3 months). My mom said she didn't know how much we gave her so she just filled the bottle and gave her the whole thing. I was a little bothered by it, especially because I know I've mentioned she takes 5oz before, but *shrug* It didn't hurt her any.

    I was just wondering for those that have already answered or anyone that will answer after this, about how often are they getting the amount they are getting?
    And for those that answered no more than 4 oz or a set amount for 1 year did the amount of time between each feeding decrease or they just ate 4 oz around the same amount of time every time?

    Thanks!
