    yeah, isabel never drank much in one go from a bottle when i went back to work...if your LO is happy doing little and often then your childcarers can be asked to adjust to this :thumbup:

    Yep! My LO should be taking around 5oz but rarely takes more than three. We often feed her till she turns it away, give her a good burping and leave it about 10 mins before trying again. Sometimes she will take more but not always :)
