I have been back to work for a while now, but dd comes with me and i nurse her there. In Sept. (well very late Aug.) I start my year long intership where dd will be at DC without me for three days. The DC isn't the problem because it is where i work I just want to make sure that i have enough pumped for the days that i'm not there. She will be 8.5 mos. She takes the bottles just fine when i need her too, so that isn't an issue, but how much is. She has taken anywhere from 4-5 oz now, but do you think two 5 oz bottles is enough? or should i do three? I don't want to waste it, and i want to make sure i have enough saved up to get through AT LEAST 4 months, when she turns a year. I don't plan on completely stopping nursing then, but i'm hoping to not hav to pump
I should tell your our schedule - Last nurse at home at 8, breakfast at 8:30-9, nurse between 10:30 and 11:30, nurse around 2, home at 5:30 and nurse on and off the rest of the night, including dinner at 6:30-7. I will nurse her more if she needs/wants it, but this is why i was thinking that 2 bottles would be enough. B/c i Know that i nurse her twice while im there with her.
I was also trying to think if by then she will be "trying" a cup or possibly a small lunch.
Sorry this is so long, but i'm planning ahead to make sure i have enough pumped for her... TIA
