I have to return to work at the end of January and am looking for some advice for transition to partial breastfeeding. Would like to keep feeding at night.
My 8 month old has been eating solids like a champ for the past 2 months. We still breastfeed for naps (2 x a day), for bedtime, and the occasional night wake-up.
Unfortunately, I am not in a job where I will be able to pump so will have to transition to formula until he is 12 months and can go onto milk. This will be a short 2-3 months on formula. Or if he is still getting BF night / morning wake-up can he just have solids during day?
- Currently, I feed LO before he goes does for nap. I do not nap him to sleep, but until drowsy. Should I sub this feed w/ formula bottle? Or change routine and adapt to being put down without feeding?
- what is the best way to transition from BF to Formula?
- what is your feeding schedule once of formula while still keeping BF at night?
Thanks for any advice!
