My DS eats 1 to 1.5 oz per hour that I'm gone. But keep in mind that your LO might not be very interested in bottles if you haven't used them much. Is there a freezer at your caregiver's place? If so, I would defrost some of that and give instructions on how to defrost more if needed, since defrosted milk is only good for about 24 hours, and I wouldn't want to waste any. Then, on each consecutive day, I'd just give the fresh milk pumped from the day before.

I think Charlie & River are the same size!    At birth: 10lbs even , 21 1/2 in tall.    At 9 months:    29 3/4" tall,  23lbs, 11 oz   It's a good thing I don't own a scale, or else I wouldn't even have a need to go into the well baby visits at all.  I look forward to seeing his measurements the most!  I get all his shots on our own schedule and usually just do a nurse visit for these. Our ped is a little kooky and doesn't really *do* anything for us...
It's so good to hear your update cakemama, I'm glad things are going well for you! 
When our nurse did that type of measurement, I thought she was genius, LOL!   Funny how they don't grow in weight as much from 6 - 9 months, huh? I'm taking River on Monday and I wouldn't be surprised if he is the same weight as 6 mo.   Also, that 6 mo height measurement has to have been wrong. Even just knowing Charlie through pics online, I can tell he's grown in height over the last 3months.
  I miss the days when DS (9 mo now) would sleep anywhere we went, up until 5 months or so. Now he does the same as your DD, he just waits until we get home and lets us know that he's not happy with a change in his nap schedule. 
How could I forget!
  That sounds wonderful, I'll take it!
Yay! Becky, help me out. So the Portlandia crew is:   Ree Tee Italiamom Jill Becky Tina - cat13 (visiting) ....     I know there's more!
  You mean they don't cry in their carseats forever!!!!???
