    I started with 100ml. Then talk to the educators for feedback on how much your DD has I.e if she skulls the whole thing maybe send a bit more, if she doesn't finish it leave it at 100ml.
    My DD would never finish a bottle at daycare, only ever had 50-75ml, then refused bottles at daycare full stop at 9 months. I figure she eats heaps of food when there & BF morning & night so didn't worry too much. Made it much easier for me not to have to send EBM!

    Thanks @rosey82. I don't want to send her without enough milk but at the same time I'd hate to see bm wasted!

    I send 100-120 mL, as that's exactly as much as I can express at one time.
    My DS is 11.5 months and has just been one 1 day feed (on daycare days) for a few weeks, that amount seems to be working well.
