Planning to try N with her first bottle of EBM in the next few days - don't need to leave her just yet but I'd like to start with the odd bottle to get her used to it. How much EBM would you think she will take? I can't for the life of me remember how much I offered when Jacob first had a bottle.

4-5 oz maybe?

Thanks Rusty, might do it in two bottles of 2-3oz each in so I don't waste it if she doesn't take to it well.

E takes 4oz at 13 weeks so I would say 2-3oz is about right for 6 weeks

We tried disoc with a bottle at around 6-8 weeks and IIRCC 3oz seemed to be about right (when we tried him with more he would take it all but them would be miserable with wind/ overly full/was a bit sick)

My first had none of it. I reckon he barely had an ounce - he hated it and never really took to EBM.
I want to try with # 2 to give some flexibility but not sure if it didn't work out last time as 6 weeks was too long to have waited? We are at 4 weeks now. I feel like he is feeding fine so it shouldn't interfere? I don't know.
Sorry to hijack!

About 4-5 oz if I remember correctly from the early days. Hope he takes to it x
