hi there ladies,
i've been doing pretty well on starting my 9-month old daughter on solids for 2x/day now. i still BF on demand when i am w/ her but pump 2x while at work to make 2- 3oz. bottles for her at daycare. she eats a whole 2nd stage solid w/ oatmeal at daycare for breakfast time (around 9am) before her 1st bottle which is at around 10am. she BF's right before i take her to daycare @ 7:30am. she BF's still 7-8x total in a given day including 2 bottles (when taken).
in the past week, our sitter noted that she's been refusing her 2nd bottle which is usually around 1-2pm. sometimes it switches where she refuses the 1st. so it seems like she's dropping a bottle during the day. i thought it was temporary but it has been a week now. her sleep has been pretty heavy and i think it has a lot to do w/ her major milestones which she has been going thru such as the crawling and hoisting herself up on her own to stand w/ support.
now, do i drop a pumping session at work to just make one bottle? i was also thinking of adding another solid meal for lunchtime to make up for the lost bottle. does this sound reasonable? i just wanna make sure she eats enough and doesn't lose the calories she had w/ the 2nd bottle as i'm aware BM has more calories than solids content-wise. i'm also worried about getting all clogged up and engorged if i immediately drop a pumping session while at work.
any input is appreciated!!!
