I'm due in a few weeks, and I'm curious...
How will I know if my baby is getting enough milk if I'm breast feeding?
AND how many ounces should I put in each bottle if I'm storing the milk so Hubby can feed the baby?

I myself had the same question! Really the answer is you'll know they are getting enough if they have wet diapers and seem satisfied. Just try and relax, take a Tylenol (it does help) especially in the first week when your nipples seem to be the sorest! I'd try to hold off pumping until a month postpartum just to establish a good milk supply! Remember the soreness will go away it IS only temporary! Drink lots of fluids but try to stay away from caffeine (Tends to make babies fussy). I found that some juices gave my ds diaper rash so I stuck with milk, water and a treat was kool-aid! If you ever need a person to talk to i'd be happy to listen! Hope this helps!
