    How much ebm to give baby?

    Is there some kind of guide of how much ebm to give baby? IE: if I go out and leave dh with baby how much ebm should he give her at feeding time? She is almost 5 weeks old and I think we've figured out that she sleeps very, very good with a 3 oz. ebm bottle given around midnight. I get about an ounce and a half on one side and 2 oz on the other side if I pump during what would be a normal feeding time. She weighed 7lbs4oz. last Wed.

    i would probably leave a couple 2-3 ounce bottles depending how long you'll be gone. it's better to use two smaller bottles then waste one large one. it's kind of experimenting until you figure out the best amount to leave. and then they change
