I have been breastfeeding my 6 month old exclusively since birth.
Before I went back to work (when he was 12 weeks), I had my freezer stocked up with probably 40 8 oz. bags of breastmilk - I was pumping every 4 hours and would pump sometimes 12 oz each time. Since going back to work, I have not been able to pump during the day - only in the morning after nursing and in the evening when I get home from work...so the supply I had in my freezer has disappeared!
I now produce about 12 oz. of milk a day through pumping and of course he nurses through the night, in the morning and before bedtime. My problem is that I do not have enough to send to daycare because I have used all my frozen.
I am going to have to begin supplementing with formula - or hide out somewhere at work and pump... until I can gradually build up my reserve in the freezer again.
Any advice on what formula is the closest to breastmilk and the most gentle on their little tummies? I feel very guilty about having to supplement...so I want to choose the BEST one.
