Sorry for odd title. I'm working 3 days a week so will be with DS for the other 4, and am not sure if I should offer daytime feeds or not - it's now 6 hours since I fed and I feel slightly uncomfortable, but not terribly so... it will only be 2 hours before I feed him so I don't want to get into the whole expressing thing.
But if I keep up the daytime feeds surely I will get this discomfort continually?
I am not sure how to refuse a feed, but I want to begin to cut down overall with a view to stopping around 12 months, does anyone have any advice for me?
I went back to work part-time when DS was 11 months old and also didn't express. I continued to feed on demand the days I was with him, but did find that he lost interest a bit in the day feeds (not the night ones tho, grrr).
I felt a bit uncomfortable for the first day or so, but it soon settled down. I went on to feed him until nearly 2 yrs. I did plan to stop at 12 months.
If you feel really full you could always nip to the loo and manually express just enough to relieve the pressure IYSWIM.
