Am after a little advice. I have just been offered a job. Only 1 and a half days a week but every little helps. The thing is I am breastfeeding and my LO is 10 months (also feeding my 2 year old). I'm thinking for the half day she will be ok. But what about the full day? Would I need to express or would she just be able to go without for those 8 hours? Many thanks in advance for any advice.
How is she with food/drinking from bottle/cup? I did KIT days with dd3 this age and she was fine as she was a good eater and just had water from a cup while I was gone. I had to express a bit for comfort though
When my LO was 10 months I had to express once or sometimes twice in work, after a while - as he got older- I stopped pumping. He's 2 now and still breastfed and I work full time. From 1 he was having cows milk anyway but he still feeds if he's with me. it is possible to work and keep feeding.
Up to you- express if necessary for comfort but your 10 month old should Be fine for the day. I returned to work when dd was under 6 months and I used to bf early morning and during the evenings after work, and dd drank from a cup while I was at work.
At this age, it should be fine to just bd morning and evening and LO will survive on solids plus drinks from a cup. My DD has never drunk milk from any source apart from me, I went back to work at 11 months and she is fine, she does eat a lot of yoghurt and cheese though!
