    Default How Much In Feeding 10 Month Old?

    DH and I are going to a wedding tomorrow. I'll nurse LO before we leave. She is exclusively BF so I have NO IDEA of how much to put in a bottle for a feeding.

    She'll need a bottle around 3pm (up from nap), 5:30pm (with dinner), before bed at 7:45pm and maybe another one if she wakes before we get home.

    I'm getting about 90ml per pumping session but is 90ml enough for a bottle feeding? I have no idea of how much she's eating and I don't want to leave my parents of who will be babysitting without enough.

    The problem I have is that I haven't been pumping because I thought we still had milk in the freezer. Apparently we don't because DH fed it without telling me that we were running low. I'll pump as much as I can in the meantime, but I need to know the minimum of what to leave them with (i.e. I'll wake up in the middle of the night if I need to).

    IDK, Momma but DS is also 10months and takes about 6oz. in a bottle...
    Since your DD is EBF, she might take less at the feeding...Try 4-5oz. and then see if she wants more?? Sorry, 5oz. is about 150ml...

    ETA: Oh, and have LOADS of fun tomorrow ! Dance your tush off!

    A newborn baby has only three demands. They are warmth in the arms of its mother, food from her breasts, and security in the knowledge of her presence. Breastfeeding satisfies all three. ~Grantly Dick-Read

    Thanks!
    I'm going to try pumping again shortly. I may have to buy some formula just in case I don't have enough. I'm sure they'll be fine. It just burns my butt that I'm not better prepared.
