DS is 10 months old and goes to daycare while I work. I pump for his bottles, so he has never had formula.
For the past few weeks, he's not finishing all of his bottles, but he is eating plenty of solids. The teachers suggested that I send in smaller or fewer bottles, so I don't waste my BM. (they know I have supply issues and how precious BM is to us!!) Right now I send in 3 6oz bottles. He's been leaving about 2 ounces in each bottle, sometimes more.
Would it be ok to only send in 3 4oz bottles? (he would get 2 meals of solids, too) Is that enough BM for his age? He still nurses 4 times when we are home (plus gets another meal of solids).
I want to make sure he has plenty of BM, but my supply sucks and nothing is really helping lately, so a decrease would be less pressure on me, too.
