to supplement or not to supplement?
my lo is 10 months old. he eats 3 meals a day and nurses like a pro when we are together about 7 times a day. i work three days a week and i have been getting less and less at the pump and frankly i am extremely tired of worrying about it b/c i cannot seem to change the amount i pump. (i've changed pump parts, taken vits...)
when we are apart i have my dcp give him a 3.5 oz bottle for lunch and a 3.5 oz bottle for dinner and a 3.5 oz bottle at bed time. yesterday i pumped twice and was only able to get about 5 oz total (normally i would have pumped 3 times and just been a bit short but he was awake when i got home so i fed him). this is not enough to feed him today and i have used all of my freezer stash. in this situation should i supplement with formula so that he continues to get the fluid ounces he is used to or should i supplement with food/water instead?
thanks for your advice!
