    After 6 weeks of breast feeding we have decided to make LO's midnight feed formula. I have been expressing for that feed so my husband can feed him and I can sleep however it is an unnecessary pressure to get enough expressed as he now wants 6oz. It takes me 3-4 attempts during the day to get enough out and I'm shattered.

    So, my question is, how much formula should we be giving him in that one feed?

    They say that formula is more filling than bm, but I found that Harrison took the same number of oz no matter what milk it was. So if LO is having 6oz of bm, I'd offer 6oz of formula x

    Thanks - we'll try 6oz and go from there.
