Breast to bottle - how much formula did your baby take?

Hi

Dd is 5 months old. I have been battling with her to take a bottle over the past 3 weeks. I'm finally getting somewhere but the maximum she will take is 2 ounces and she will then sleep until her next feed ( which is usually a normal breastfeed.

I'm trying to introduce formula gradually but surely she should take more than 2 ounces?

What did you do?

Thanks

If this is gong to be your only bottle feed then I wouldn't worry about it.

If she's not hungry and happy then I really wouldn't be too concerned. Y don't know how much milk she's having when you bf her so its hard to know how much ff she needs. But if he's happy then go with the flow.
