    Default How much EBM to give?

    Hi,
    I have an exclusively BF 11week old who tonight I will be leaving at home with daddy for the first time! πŸ˜₯

    She doesn't usually wake overnight, but on the off chance she wakes for a feed before I get home how much EBM should she get? I have heard of the 150 x weight divided by number of feeds, but wasn't sure if this applies to a 2 month old or only younger babies.

    She's approx 6kg and has usually 5 feeds a day.

    Thanks!

    I'm pretty sure DS was on 150ml at that age.

    I believe that is the guide no matter the age but not always correct. DS is having a bottle of EBM at 10pm and was having 150mls as per his weight but he still seemed hungry so he is now having about 180-190 and is much more satisfied and sleeps then til 4am.
