How to talk to my SO about amount of BM for our daughter?

Hello. My SO and I have a 4 month old EBF girl, she is rarely without me but I do pump for storage and have left her a handful of times. My husband always over feeds when I am gone; I will leave out what she needs, plus 2 oz "in case..." Today before I left I made sure he was armed with a binki, ideas of what to do if she fusses, and some info from the interwebs on how babies her age need 1-1.5 oz per hour Mom is gone (so in this case less than four ounces as I would be back in less than two hours. I left him out five ounces, just returned to find out she has eaten TWELVE ounces in the 1.5 hours I was gone!!!! He says "If she cries I am going to feed her" and I'm upset, because when he does this she ends up not sleeping due to tummy ache and HE doesn't ever get up with her... HELP!
