    Default How much milk in bottle for bf'ed baby?

    I am trying to figure out how much milk I need to put in each bottle for my baby. She usually just nurses, but I am going out of town for work and have no clue how much she eats at a time. Any calculators out there? She is 6.5 months old, weighs about 17lbs and nurses 6-7 times a day. thanks!

    At that age my baby was taking about 6 oz. 5-6x/day.

    Not an approved LLL source but it should be helpful anyhow:

    I am curious about the same thing, my son is 5 weeks old and weighs about 8 lbs. I am trying to pump after each feed and it is taking forever to get enough. I work 12 hours shifts three times a week and need enough for the first night, but have no idea how much to leave.
