This might be a silly question...
I've just started feeding bub solids and have dropped a dream feed. I've decided to express at the time of the dream feed. As I have no idea how much milk bub takes am I to assume that whatever I express at that time will be enough to use for a feed during the day (when Im not around)? Bub is going to day care at 9 months (currently 5 months old) and I'd like to give him breast milk. Is the expressed milk enough or should I give a certain amount of mls? Thanks

I used to do the same thing when DS dropped his 10pm feed. What I got out of both breasts (with a auto single pump) was enough for one feed I would just pump till there was nothing coming out

It's highly variable. My dd would take 100 - 150ml a feed when she was 5 - 7 months old, but she would feed at different time to when I would expect, so I might have expected her to feed twice while I away from her, but she would only feed once. She has got more fussy as she gets older and likes her solids & water more - she is more prepared to wait 7+ hours for a 'proper' feed from me and refuse all attempts at milk in any form before that.
