I'm giving breastfeed milk through bottle to my baby.. So I want to know if I feed after every two hours, what should be the quantity of milk in each feed??

it's myth that the kids who are bottle fed will be obese. there are no ill effects of the breast milk no matter how much quantity a kid takes. a kid takes milk bm or formula as per his needs. observe carefully n increase or decrease quantity as per child's need. e. g after motion or pee child needs more feed. sometimes after bath child is more hungry than normal. if possible prefer natural feeding as much as possible which has no side effects. the best way to keep watch if the feed is adequate is to see how many times a child passes urine. in 2 months age it should be 12-14 times a day.

It's breastmilk so relax :) plus when time comes for top feed in bottle they won't even take it. So we mothers will always be going through one concern or the other.

Thanks Neha :) I was worried as I read on Internet that babies getting feed through bottle usually get obese as they don't know when they are full and gulps more milk

Sometimes natural feeding and sometimes using breast pump

Are you using breast pump or doing natural feeding.

For 2 months baby, you can start by 30 ml and if baby asks for more, you can give more. And in a day or two, you will understand how much baby needs.
