Oh, right, the formula! I know we're supposed to be giving it, but I don't think of it first. I'm so determined to breastfeed first I forget about it . . . That will make the first day a bit easier. I may pull out one frozen bottle of breastmilk just in case (they are in the 2.5 oz bottles), pump some starting Friday, and let him make up the rest with formula. I don't get a lot pumping now but I know that's typical since I'm mostly nursing when I'm with her so I'm not concerned yet. Unfortunately, we only have bottles that are four oz and up, but I've never given them to my husband with more than three oz, so he's used to that I think. I was pumping into the medela storage bottles at first, and they are two and a half oz I think. I dint have any more on hand though.
I was thinking of letting my husband and baby sleep until she wakes. . .typically around six or seven am, which would mean I'd have to put her in her bed when I get up around five thirty, but that just may not be realistic, and I may need more time in the mornings now. Do people try to fit in a nursing session before they leave for work? I'm really uncertain if that would make it easier or harder for me. Because of my commute, leaving later than six is not ideal so I've always tried to do prep and shower the night before if possible. I could leave later but it would extend the time I'm away and I really don't want to do that.
As for paced bottle feeding, we've talked about it and he's trying. She still...
