She normalky drinks between 1.5-2.5 oz every 3ish hours. Some 3oz. But she's putting on weight well, currently 8lbs 14oz (up 11 oz in a week and should be back to birth weight of 9lbs 5 oz soon)
11 oz in a week is great! I think K was eating around that amount at that stage too. Right now she usually nurses for anywhere from 10 to 20 minutes (depends on how long ago I fed her) and then drinks anywhere between 2 and 4 oz of formula depending on how much breast milk she got.
At this point, I've made my peace with the fact that I will likely never be producing enough to keep up with her demand. If we can make it to six months with me still getting her at least *some* breast milk, I'll be happy. Save
We're doing donor milk. I was trying to also nurse her but it just got to be too time consuming. My friend's little girl is about 12 days older so she's given me her extra. She's averaging about 50 oz a day in 5 pumping sessions so she's just giving me whatever she can't use fast enough. So DD gets about half and hakf. Im just glad she's getting some breastmilk, even if its not mine.
