Re: Is it possible to drop one feeding?
hi mama, do you mean that LO will be with another caretaker for 3-4 hours a day? if that's what you mean then you have a lot of options - pump once while he's away and have caretaker give that to him. some babies might be able to nurse right before and right after and you won't have to pump. formula is an option too but be careful not to stretch the length of time you go without nursing or pumping as it could impact your supply longterm. he will probably start to be able to go longer periods of time without nursing in the next month or two anyway - at least when you're not with him! i think it would be more difficult to drop a nursing if you're with him.
