    For the age of your baby (hope I am remembering right - less than 3 weeks?) 100ml is AWESOME. Some mums take many weeks to build up to being able to express this much in a day. I could only get around 30ml at this stage and had plenty of milk (you can tell if you have enough milk by watching babies nappies - 5 wet 2 dirty in 24hrs)

    Another karicare goat here!! At 6 months we went on to Heinz follow on and now at 12 months dropped bottles, my DD was never really into drinking bottle or BFing.

    And I agree with purplecat, 100ml is awesome! I

    If you are getting an EXTRA 100ml on top of feeding every 2-4hrs, then I'd say you are doing a great job! If bubs is putting on weight and has plenty of wet nappies, you shouldn't need to comp feed with formula.

    FTR - Yes i'm a big believer of b/f and did so for 5mths, but now currently FF (prescription) due to allergies with my DS - so this is an unbiased post! We all need to do what's best for our bubs.

    It does And you don't have to worry about the antibiotics/hormones/pesticides that can be found in non-organic varieties.

    at 3 weeks old 100mls is awesome!
    Don't stress OP, bub WILL let you know if she is hungry
    I remember at my daughters first health check up (she was 1 month old) she was having 120mls every 3-4 hours.

    Is your Bub loosing weight?
    That's the only time I would be concerned with how much there getting.

    One thing my peadi told me, is not to stress when formula feeding about how much there getting because if she was on the breast I would really have no idea how much she would be drinking, she might be on the breast for an hour and get 20mls or she might be on the breast for 10mins and get 100mls.
    Babies were never designed to have a "standard" amount of drinking.
    If bub is gaining weight, then there is no problem.

    Cakeyloaf, this happens all the time, people posting in the wrong section, instead of being sarcastic perhaps just point out the simple fact that this is the bottlefeeding section or if you feel uncomfortable or unable to do just that you could just report my post.

    I'll bow out now, once again my apologies :handshake:
    It may have been posted in the bottle feeding section but OP is the one who brought up that she has been expressing and EBM so really your post was still quite relevant.

    Well I browsed in Woollies (still have not decided on whether to supplement) and they did not stock the Bellamys Organic - how disappointing! they are looking into it for me.

    I compared the iron levels of the different formulas and suprisingly the gold varieties iron levels were on par with the original formulas.

    The Karicare aptamil was slightly less in the iron level too so I guess this could be an option.

    Our woolworths don't stock it anymore but our Aldi do. It used to only cost $15.99 too :-)
