1 Bump

I have been pumping and feeding my 1 month old out of a bottle. I give her about 3 ounces at a time. She seems content when she is done. How will I know when it is time to move her to 4 ounces?

  • She might be ready now. Try it and see. Just because she's content with 3 oz doesn't mean the 4th wouldn't be good for her. If she doesn't eat it all, then you know she's not ready.

  • When she sucks the bottle dry and looks at you like what happened? you know she wants more!!
