Hello Ladies! I am pretty new here (I've been reading around but never posted). Anyways Im Jessica and my DS is 12 weeks old today and EBF (YAY!) I have a DD who is 4 and I wasn't able to brestfeed, I honestly didn't even try because I was lacking a support system (wish I would have found this group back then), but this time I am determined to succeed.
Anyways, I work full time and I am away from baby approximately 9 hours a day including travel time. My mom takes care of baby while I work, she is always complaining that DS is always acting hungry. I leave 3 3oz bottles for him. I just want to make sure that this is okay and that I'm not starving my baby (I understand that my milk fomulates to his needs but my mother doesnt seem to understand this). I am following the 1-1.25 oz every hour away :) I honeslty do not want to leave more than I can pump, and I am able to pump 9oz in a day (I don't get many pumping breaks at work and wake up an hour before him to pump).
Am I leaving enough or should I increase bottle sized to 4 oz?
