My LO is 8 months old and has been exclusively BF since birth. Currently he has 5 feedings per day (nurse in the morning, 2 bottles at day care, nurse in late afternoon, and nurse before bed). He is getting 5 ounzes in each of his bottles and we have enough storage to continue that through 10 months...My question is when can he go down to 1 bottle a day at day care and how many ounzes? I'm pumping 3 times a day at work and having a hard time keeping my supply up. I also get up at 5:00 am and pump before my LO wakes. Since I have a 2 month storage can I start pumping less, assuming at 10 months he might only take 1 bottle (we would continue the 3 nursing sessions)?
I truly enjoy BF, but working full-time and pumping is tough and at times un rewarding.
