When preparing bottles for daycare, store them in 2-3 ounce amounts. In doing so, the baby is not given more than needed, less is wasted and the caregiver doesn't feel the need to finish the bottle just because it's filled to the brim. As you may know, the amount of breastmilk you produce after the first month does not change much, but its composition continues adjusting to meet your baby's growing and developmental needs. Therefore, you may be surprised to learn that even at 6 months, your baby may not drink more than three ounces at a feeding, when getting a bottle.
