I have 2 questions...the first is about milk consumption. I know the "rule" is roughly 1.5 ounces per hour you are away from your baby so I am trying to figure out if my LO is going through a growth spurt or just being over fed. My sitter had bf her babies and wathed my LO for about a month at the end of the school year. DD was taking 3 four ounce bottles from 7:30am to 3:30 pm. That seems about right to me and I had no trouble keeping up w/ pumping. HOWEVER, this morning she watched my LO while I took my dogs to the vet. I was only gone for 2.5 hours and she took 2 four ounce bottles! One almost right after I dropped her off and the other an hour and a half later! Was that comfort eating or could this be the beginning of a growth spurt?
My second question is about sleep. How much should she be getting> I think we are only averaging like 14 hours total in 24 hours. That includes little cat naps too
Thanks in advance!
