I give my LO formula while at daycare, and not pump at work, and just feed him after work and through the night to the morning????
I have returned backk to work for about 3 weeks now, and I have only been able to pump 1 time consistently. I usually nurse between 5 & 6 am, drop LO off around 8am then pump a 5 -7 oz bottle around 12 noon. Then pick up LO from daycare around 3:30, then pump around 4pm (he usually has just completed his feeding at 2:45 - 3), then nurse for the rest of the night until the next morning. My schedule at work is kinda crazy and I do alot of driving and sometimes it's hard to pump. I have tried to get in 2 sessions at work, but I am only able to get 1 pumping session in. I have been thinking of offering formula only (i have started mixing 1/2 soy with 1/2 bm when I didn't get a chance to pump enough for the next day) during the day when he is at daycare, but I am afraid that it will decrease my supply at night.. SShould I continue with my current schedule (It is impossible to add another pump session at work) or just take away the bm while I am at work??
