So if you are pumping and only get like 2-3 oz...then you pump say like the next morning and get another 2-3 oz and your LO takes 4-5 oz in a feeding.....can you combine the two pumped BM??? Or do you still have to feed from two bottles????

I don't see why you can't combine them. I've done that plenty of times, and my dd is fine.

Yes, you can definitely combine them. In fact, I did that a LOT in the beginning to make "real" bottles when necessary. Just make sure that the bottles are the same temperature when you combine them -- both cold from the fridge, or both warm straight from you. Otherwise no worries. Good luck! ~spam

The other thing you can do is if you freeze the first bottle you can add the other bottle to it as long as you refrigerate the second bottle for several hours first. It's a great way to make sure you get your money's worth out of those b___stmilk storage bags. The most important thing is that the temperature is similar. Never add warm milk to refrigerated or frozen milk. Good luck!

from what I have read you shouldn't add, say, freshly expressed warm milk to cold milk. But if you have some already warm and add some fresh milk to that it wouldn't really be any different that bf-ing directly after bottle feeding.

I've added fresh milk to cold milk. Never thought about it. Don't know why it would make a difference. Ds is 15wks and I've always done it that way. I just attach the bottle back onto the pump from the fridge til it's full.
