Newborns breastfeeding & tongue tied

My  5 day old baby is tongue tied & I am trying to figure out how much my baby should intake from a bottle. I need to know so I can pump the right amount of breastmilk & feed her & how much I need to pump more to increas my milk supply in order to breastfeed her once she is clipped! Please let me know.. I was able to breastfeed my 1st without any problems & wish to do so with my 2nd!

At 5 days old it's going to be about 1-2oz every 1.5-2 hours but it could be more. If I were you I'd pump every 2hours and continue for a few minutes after your milk has stopped flowing.
