Whether it's your first time or you’ve done it all before, no one can predict what breastfeeding will be like.
I'm returning to work next week and want to continue BFing so will be expressing at work. Trouble is, I've got no idea how much milk to leave for ds while I'm out. We're doing BLW and although ds is doing well with solids, I don't think he's eating as much as he would be if he was spoon-fed. He's still quite a boob monster.I'll be giving a big feed before I leave at around 7.30 am and then getting home around 5.30 - 6.00 pm. Anyone done similar recently who can give advice?
Does he take a bottle well ? In which case I'd leave 3x 120ml (4oz) bottles, then see how he goes.DS had 3x120ml until about 11 months I think, and didn't drop the last daytime feed until 14 months
He will drink from a bottle, but we don't bother very often as I'm trying to put all my expressed milk in the freezer at the moment.Thanks for that suggestion. That sounds like a reasonable quantity. I'll give it a try.I'm a teacher, so only going back for 3 weeks before the holidays , and by September, I'm hoping he'll be taking less milk.
