Hello! I am exclusively pumping for my 7.5 month old (nursed for 4 months but gets bottles at daycare and likes them better ). I work full-time. My DS consumes about 35 oz (give or take a few) in a 24-hour period in the form of 5 oz bottles. This includes one 4oz bottle overnight (which would be nice to phase out in the near future ). He is of average weight (probably a little over 17 pounds now) and just starting to crawl and just seems really hungry! He has three small "meals" per day of fruit/veggie puree with some oatmeal cereal mixed in and and maybe a few "puffs" or Cheerios. Should I consider increasing his bottles to 5.5 or even 6 ounces? Or increase the solids intake?
Also - as his solid food intake increases over the next few months, how will his breastmilk (in the form of bottles) intake change? I'm curious as I hope to continue to pump for as long as possible (some days are easier than others!) as well as freeze as much as possible so I might be able to stop pumping a month or so early and use the frozen milk. Any feedback from other exclusive pumpers would be helpful. Thanks to all!
