Hi mommas! I work part-time, two days a week and my 9 month old takes bottles while I'm gone. Up until recently he was taking 6 ounce bottles. I know now from reading posts here that he was likely being over-fed. I had no idea. Anyway, because that's what he was drinking, I was freezing in 6 or 7 ounce bags since that would typically be one pumping session for me. Well, he is now taking in 4-5 ounce bottles while I'm gone. And I'm only missing two feedings. My question is how to deal with thawing my frozen stash for that first day that I'm gone. If I take out the two bags necessary that will be 12 to 14 ounces. Only 8-10 will be used that day. How do I not end up throwing out the extra? If I pull the bags the night before into the fridge, they are usually still partially frozen in the a.m. Otherwise I would just divide them up before I leave. So my husband usually puts one in some warm water to finish thawing it, pours what he needs in a bottle and puts the rest in the fridge. But that's not enough for the second bottle. Once those leftover ounces have been warmed though, its my understanding that they need to be offered at the next feeding or trashed, right? And I can't re-freeze. So what can I do? Any advice? My second work day isnt an issue since I just use the fresh milk from the day before. It's just that first day that is killing me. I hate wasting those precious ounces! Thanks for the help!!!
