I'll be travelling for work when my baby girl is 11+ months. I was hoping to get enough breast milk stashed to cover the two weeks I'll be gone, but for a variety of reasons I don't think I'll be leaving her much at all. (Part of the issue is that she's been reverse cycling, so I just don't have as much milk available to pump during the day).
I'm doing what I can to keep trying to pump and store, but I think she's going to need some supplement available to her. My breast-milk-savvy friends are all over the place with their thoughts on what I should do -- whole milk, formula, donor milk?
It seems like it would be easier for her and my husband if I can make sure she will take the supplement before I leave, right? She does eat a few small meals a day, and will take some water, but she will still need her milk bottles for nutrition and comfort.
