ftm, here. my ds is 11wks, i work part time and have sice 8 wks. he takes ebm from either dh or a friend who is also a bf'ing ftm. he takes 6 oz every 2-3 hrs while i'm gone. he does bf every 2-3 when i'm home, but this seems like a lot of milk--kellymom says 25oz/24hrs. he is gaining a ton and he sleeps most of the way through the night. it isn't a big prob because i've been able to keep up supply by pumping at work, but are we overfeeding him??
btw- he almost never spits up after a bottle but almost always does while breastfeeding . . .

I personally wouldn't worry about overfeeding him. I think babes now when they are full and stop. Since he's not spitting up with the bottle, I would say even if he's somfort nursing the bottle, he's not taking too much for him.

My first ds always took a ton of milk from the bottle too and now he's a skinny 3yr old.
