DS2 is now 6 days old (I think..brain is fried)
Breast feeding was/is absolute agony with cracked, bleeding nipples and feeding every hour or so.
So, to ensure he still gets breast milk I am expressing and bottle feeding which both he and I love. He is feeding easier, isnt stressing and sleeps longer aswell.
How much EBM does a bub need? I cant find this anywhere.
So far he has had 4 bottles.
First one 80mls and drank 70mls of that.
Second I decided to do just an even 100ml and discard what wasnt used and he drank the lot.
Third he had 90mls and drank the lot.
Fourth he had 100mls and drank 50mls.
So, Im not even getting a pattern to work with.
ABA doesnt have any info on amounts either.
FWIW he is 6 days old and 3200grams.
Thanks for any help you can give me.
