Hi there, I'm new and I have a question. My baby girl is not crazy about bottles but has agreed to eat from them when she is at the baby sitter's while I'm at work. She is there for about 10.5 hours four days a week and will only eat between 6 and 10 ounces of milk. I'm currently pumping three times a day and getting between 12 and 16 ounces of milk doing so. She's 8 months old and I don't think that she is going to suddenly increase the amount that she eats during the day, but I always send her with 12 ounces.
My questions are (1) does this mean that she eats 16 ounces or more during the day when she's with me and (2) should I drop a pumping or pump for less time and provide her less milk during the day? My freezer was full and I gave away a bunch of milk a week ago and I'm already starting to fill it back up again.
