I'm exclusively breastfeeding my daughter. She is 9 weeks old.
When I give her a bottle of breastmilk she can easily drink 6oz. She has drank 7 before but she was just stuffed.
I don't force her to finish it or anything, that's just what she eats.
Is that because it's from a bottle, or do you think she eats that much when on the breast aswell?
She eats about every 2 to 3 hours for anywhere from 20 to 45 minutes. I know I have enough milk because on top of feeding her I can pump like 8oz every morning.
She also sleeps from about 9 till 7/8 each night.
I'm just curious because that seems like alot of milk for a 9 week old. if she is getting about 6oz every feed that's like 40+ a day :|
