how much milk does a 2 week old normally eat? ive been doing nothing but breastfeeding for the last 2 weeks but i would like a night to myself but im not willing to have my baby take to fourmula. how much should i store for each feeding? i have a little boy :) thanks
Anywhere from 2-3 ounces every 2-3 hours. I would leave at least 1 ounce for every hour you will be away from him plus a bit extra. Also don't forget if you will be away from your baby for more than 3 hours you will need to make sure you pump every 3 hours or so to keep your supply going.
Enjoy your evening out!
