Re: How to determine how much milk needed per day?
The general rule is 1 to 1.5 ounces per hour you will be apart. For very young babies it's best to leave several small bottles, maybe 1 to 2 ounces each. That way you know your milk won't be getting wasted from bottles that are too large and it also helps prevent overfeeding because it sort of forces the caregiver to give baby a break every few ounces.
Here is a great resource for determining how much milk you will need. And here's another great article you might want to share with your caregiver about how to bottlefeed the breastfed baby.
