Re: Not enough milk?
my mom has had the same thing happen to her when she's done feeding my 4 month old dd. it could be that your son just likes to suckle, and maybe a pacifier may do the trick. a friend of mine offered her son a paci after a feeding and her son was happy! if he was really, really hungry, he'd probably spit out the paci and start crying again cause he's getting nothing from the paci.
also, maybe he has to burp?! my dd starts crying after a bottle feeding...and my dh and i now know her "i have to burp" cry. also, babies tend to drink more from the bottle, but it doesn't necessarily mean that they are still hungry. i would recommend that you do NOT mix formula with your EBM. if you feel like you are giving the right amount, then continue giving the daycare what you are giving them now. you could, to be on the safe side, give them maybe a couple of 2oz bottles of forumla to offer to your ds after a 4oz bottle of EBM...but remember if his weight gain is good and he has plenty of wet diapers, then what you are providing should be sufficient. just have the daycare folks soothe him after a feeding if/when he starts to cry.
i hope i somewhat answered your question. good luck!
