Just wondering how many ozs your BF babies will drink in a bottle of iether BM or formula? I am lucky to get 3ozs in but she eats more frequently if you give a bottle, how much?

When Bryson takes a bottle of BM (in the rare occasion) he usually drinks about 4-5 oz.

My JB is a big eater, then, because she'll drink between 6 and 8 ounces. Normally G has 5 daily breastfeeding sessions, so when I leave her with my mom or DH on those rare occasions, she takes a big feeding from them. When I pump, though, I don't get 8 ounces. At most, I usually get 4-5.

The girls usually take 6oz if I give them a bottle. Although Megan will sometimes drink 10-12oz. She's a piggy.

Keelan's never drank more than 3.5 oz of breastmilk at a time.
