Re: how can I explain it to grandma
How many hours is he with grandma? My baby is with my parents about 9 hours max, and generally only goes through 9oz or so of formula/breastmilk during that time. I've found it helps my mom if I premix the bottle amounts ahead of time and give her a general time when he should be fed (he goes about 1oz/hr). This helps her figure out if it's hunger or just general baby fussing, and if he actually needs food or just cuddling.
