Lake was exclusively breastfed up until 3 weeks ago when we introduced the bottle. At that time, he'd eat 3 oz every 2-3 hours. When I started work, I pumped three different times and sent whatever milk came out with him. It usually came out to about 18 oz. That was more than enough for 12 hours. Now, 18 oz barely lasts half the day! I keep saying that Lake doesn't need to eat that much but my mom swears that he needs to eat 5-6 oz every 2 hours. She'll be going home this Saturday so I won't have to fight with her about it anymore but I was just wondering, is she right?
