Ds is 10m and I work 3 full days a week. He is ebf and eats solids very very well. Since I went back to work I have been expressing for him. I had a decent stash in freezer but he has so much of it so wondering what he actually needs. He is fed on demand on the days I don't work and doesn't feed that often tbh but when I am at work he goes insane for the ebm apparently. The first few days I left him he had 3 x 4oz bottles a day!! I can't keep up with that type of out put so how much should he have???

LLL says 2-4 oz per feed for a pre weaning baby, less later.
Are they using paced bottle feeding? Sometimes babies drink fast and don't realise they are full. Paced feeding basically makes it slow so they realise when they're full. It's easier to watch than explain - youtube have tutorials.
