My little angel just started daycare yesterday. She's 4 months and she's at daycare from 6 am till 5 or 5:30. I did a milk intake calculator and it said she would take at most 2.5 ounces per feeding...at home she nurses every 2 hours, thats when she actually drinks, in between she uses me as a pacifier if I'm not doing anything that I need to move around and what not.
So 2.5 ounces times half of 11...I was thinking like 15 ounces at most...she's only taken a full bottle..and her bottle are 9 ounces.\
Is that alright? Her doctor said I could introduce solids...should I so that she gets more calories during the day? When I do get her home, she is nursing for longer periods of time. Before she was nursing for about 10 on one side, every two hours, the last 2 days, it's been about 20 minutes every two hours and at nights now, where as before she would only use me as a pacifier.
