I have 2 month old twins. My husband and I have started a new bedtime routine with them that is working really well. Part of our routine is to bottle feed them 4 oz of expressed breast milk. (Hopefully they don't move up to 5 oz in the near future.) Once we feed them their bottles of my milk, we put them to bed and I go pump so I will continue producing milk. The problem that I am having is that I am not pumping 8 oz (which makes up two 4 oz bottles...) I am lucky to pump 5-7 oz. So after my babies wake up and breastfeed the next morning, I pump again and get a few more ounces. So I end up having enough to feed my twins for that night. I am just confused because I feel like I should be pumping what my twins are eating (especially because they don't eat from the breast...just from the bottle for their bedtime feeding). Any insight or advice?
