Re: How much to feed
It is a little higher than average. My LO recently went through a week where he was drinking a ton when I was away (20oz in 13-14 hours!!). I was freaked out that I would never keep up, and then he seemed to ease off a little (only had 18 yesterday). Part of it is growth spurts and other unidentifiable variables. I am lucky in that I can usually pump what he needs at work, but we did have to dip into the freezer supply. Also, have you tried feeding him three ounces, seeing if you can distract him, and then feeding more if he really wants it? That's what my DCP does and he tends to do okay with that.
