    Default How much expressed milk should my husband feed the baby while I'm at work?

    My husband is currently feeding the baby (she's almost 4 months) 3 ounces every 2 hours. Is that good?

    Here is a good tool to see how much your LO should be taking in.

    The rule of thumb is generally 1-1.5 oz for every hour you are gone.
