    Default feeding ?

    I am returning to school Today and will leave my mom a bottle of BM for DD.
    I leave for school at 3:30pm so I will nurse her. She will have some chicken soup with pasta for dinner about 5ish. Her favorite!!!!!I return from school at 7:15pm. should DD get the bottle of BM at some point? When I get home at 7:15pm I will nurse her and put her to sleep.

    On average DD goes two and half three hours to nurse sometimes shorter.


    What should I do.....I used to give bottle at 5 and then my mom fed her a small meal andthen I came home and nursed but that was when she was 6 months and eating mote frequently but now she is 8 months.

    I had a similar schedule last term. Mine would take 3 ounces while I was gone, but I don't know that it is necessary if your baby is eating solids well (mine wasn't really eating that much yet at 8 months). You can probably play it by ear right now. Leave a bottle, but have your caregiver give it only if your baby seems to need it.

    She will eat a good 4 -5 ounces of food. She loves food. I feed her the broth part and she goes to town on the noodles (small shells).

    any one else?
