My DD is 8.5 mos old and I work full time. When I'm not at home (9 hrs) she sleeps for 3 hours and eats about 8-9 oz breastmilk. She also eats fruits and eggs, maybe some leftover from her dinners too. When I come home, she nurses every 4 hours until the morning, plus a nice cooked dinner. Night nursing doesnt bother me at all as she nurses and goes back to sleep immediately. I enjoy my night feedings as I can only pump 8 oz a day at work and not more than that anymore...
I have two questions:
1- Is it ok that I give my baby solids and have her drink breastmilk together with her solids? Dinner time I do this and I also let my baby sitter do the same for lunch. Or... is it better to offer them one by one? And maybe have a little water with solids instead?
2- Is 8 oz little bit of breast milk during the day while I'm not home?
Any advise is geatly appareciated. thanks!
