  • What you express is the amount she eats. When you express more than before then she's not eating as much. Lets say she eats 8oz 1 time and 4 oz another, then that's what you send. And any fresh breast milk not used can be stored in the freezer for 3 months!!! To know for sure take a bottle of expressed milk and feed it to her measure amount she ingests. Good luck and keep up the good work!!!
