Re: Introducing Cow's Milk
How is he doing with solids?
I think if it were me I would probably try to see if he could just get through the day with what you can pump and maybe up the solids a bit and offer some water. I mean, you could give cow's milk and it would probably be ok, but it's not necessary. If he is nursing 3-4 times a day when he is with you he doesn't really need any other milk substitute, even after you pump wean.
I guess what I'm saying is that if you want to intro cow's milk it would probably be fine. But don't feel like you HAVE to just because you are pumping less breastmilk. I offered my DD cow's milk after I pump weaned (or I had the DC offer it) and she never would drink it. I wasn't concerned because she ate lots of solids and still nursed quite a bit when we were together.
ETA: I totally agree that formula is unnecessary at this point.
