I am going to try to feed my son breast milk, expressed via pump for the first time. How much do I need to feed him, to make sure I have enough and/or not waste it?

Since breast milk is very thin and light compared to formula, he would need at least 3 to 5 ounces every 2-3 hours. Well, at least this is what i did with my daughter when i went back to work. I would often have to supplement with formula . It was a pain in the neck, but i would check with your pediatrician or BF counselor, every baby is different.

If you see this, leave this form field blank.
