While I am at work I know to send 1-1.5 ounces per hour. DD used to take 3.5 ounce bottles 5-6 during my shift and I would pump that same amount while away. So it seemed right. Now babysitter and DH says she isn't satisfied after eating that amount and is crying for more at 1 hour 45 min or sooner. But I don't pump enough for 4 ounce bottles all day and I don't think DD gets 4 ounces from me when she nurses. She used to nurse 15 min both sides each time (except middle of night feedings). Now she only nurses 15 total sometimes she will do the second side but not everytime. she has no issue latching on and seems happy to be nursing but just doesn't stay on as long anymore.
Is she more efficient now or not like nursing as much?
Do you think she needs 4 ounces or is it just a phase?
Is it ok to give her 4 ounce bottles even if she doesn't get that much from the breast?
If she is drinking 4 ounce bottles will her frequency decrease?
