My dd is 6weeks old (tomorrow). I am so thrilled to have bf'd this long. Things were awful with my 1st child (5 yo). I feel so blessed to be able to bf!!
In Sept. I need (don't want to go) to go back to work (teacher). I am so concerned about losing my supply which I feel is just enough right now. I already pump 1 or 2 times a day- once every a.m. and maybe a 2nd time if I feel a few feeds were 'lazy'.
I can pump at work- dd will probably be given 2-3 bottles while I am gone.
When should I introduce a bottle?
How much should I put in the bottle?
Do I pump at the same time dd is getting the bottle (before i go back to work)?
I am so worried to even start the bottle and miss a bf moment- emotionally and supply wise. Whenever dd isn't too hungry or just has a blah feed, I worry about losing supply- clearly I'm supply crazed.
Thanks- for all of your help
