My DD starts daycare tomorrow, and I'm going back to work.
Despite my efforts, I have not been able to pump a lot of milk off. I only have about 6, 4.5oz bottles in the freezer. It seriously takes me 3 days to get 4-5 oz pumped off.
Because of this, I need a back-up plan. I know that once she starts daycare she's going to go through this fast. I will likely be able to pump off a bit more since she won't be nursing during the day, but I don't think I can keep up with her demand.
SO I need help. What should I supplement her with? Cows Milk? Goats? Formula?
How much milk should she be drinking per day? Most sources say 14-19oz. Does that sound right?
Right now, DD nurses CONSTANTLY. She seriously is on my boob any chance she gets (ie ripping my shirt down to nurse if I'm holding her, sitting on the floor, etc). She will nurse all day and all night (don't get me started on the night nursing!) if I let her.
I just need to know where to turn. Up until now, it's just been easy to give her the boob whenever she wants it. Now I need to think about supplementing for the first time and have NO idea where to go.
