Well i got a call yesturday from a temp agency i am working with to show up for a job today. i decided when i got a job i would try to wean now 5 and half month old DS into formula. figured i would have more time... anyway so i tried to start as soon as i heard the news. i never had a problem with giving him bottles of ebm and hes had formula a few times but yesturday he completely refused the formula in the bottle for about 4 hours than he drank 2oz then he completely refused it again for another 4/5 hours, even tried mixing it with the little bit of breastmilk i was able to pump, until i gave in and gave him breast milk from the tap. then soon after he puked up everywhere, overeating?
well today i started my job and my dad was watching him. first my dad tryed formula and he wouldn't eat it then he gave him some thawed ebm and he still refused to eat. during the coarse of the day he had about a 1/4th of a jar of baby food. however it wasn't until 8 hours later my dad said he ate 3oz of ebm. and didn't eat again until 3 hours later when i showed up to bf to him. so in about 10hr period he only had alittle baby food and 3oz of breastmilk today, help!!! my dad seems to think this is alright and he would eat if he was hungry but my baby is a piglet that eats about everyhour (he snacks) and i just know 3oz in 10hrs is not right. what can i do?
also i'm not really able to pump at work so continueing breastfeeding them is not really an option. unless theres a way to breastfeed and not have to pump for a 10 hours period? any which way, how do i work this out at work so my boobs engorged and arent hurting constantly?
