    if baby doesn't finish the milk you can use it for the next feeding but shouldn't keep it past that.

    Are you exclusively pumping and bottle feeding? Or are you nursing and still pumping out 5 ounces every 2 to 3 hours? Are you interested in getting your son to nurse if he isn't currently?

    Yes I'm pumping 4-5oz every 2-3 hours and bottle feed my baby because everytime he laches he starts to cry after a minute on nursing and that's too much he crys to i have to bottle feed him so he can get his milk otherwise he wont eat much directly from my breast. Any help? I do want to nurse him i love it i did it for 1 week now he's 3 weeks and he only takes bottles.
