I second lots of the advice here like more frequent LITTLE bottles of an ounce or two.
My current daycare baby ate 2 to 4 ounces three times a day. (at that age) He's here from 7:00-4:30. (12 oz in 9.5 hours)
Now, he eats two meals, and three four ounce bottles. Sometimes, he eats less milk, because he's loving the food.
The baby before him ate FOUR 6 ounce bottles every day. He was here from 7:00-4:00 every day. (24 oz in 9 hours)
I second the motion to WAIT and not cut back on pumping. If I were you, I'd focus on really getting a situation that is pleasant and comfortable with the pump. Solve the thrush and other issues. Also I second the Gentian Violet suggestion - works wonders.
You never know when that freezer stash will come in handy! ...if you're like me, later on it will be nice to go on a date or out with the girls periodically and do a "pump and dump" guilt free since you have the big stash! Or, later on, you could decide to donate it, and wouldn't that feel good?
