Estimate the number of times that baby nurses per day (24 hours).

Then divide 25 oz by the number of nursings.

This gives you a “ballpark” figure for the amount of expressed milk your exclusively breastfed baby will need at one feeding.

Example: If baby usually nurses around 8 times per day, you can guess that baby might need around 3 ounces per feeding when mom is away. (25/8=3.1).
