Please take a moment to give me your advice. I am bfing my 3rd child. He is exclusively on the breast except in the rare case I need to take a certain medication, then he gets one feeding of breast milk in a bottle while I pump and dump.
At any rate, he was very hungry so I started him on cereal at 4 months. He loves it. I have some breast milk stored but all at 4 ounces per pack. I use about 1 ounce with the cereal. I thought once I defrost milk and heat it I can't use it again, correct?
I know there is no one way to do things and there is no right answer. But what do I do? I don't want to waste three ounces, I don't have that much supply to waste three ounces.
I try to pump before giving him cereal and use the fresh but it's only 1/2 ounce which isn't enough. Starting to pump and store up supplies of one ounce per bag doesnt seem like a good idea either because those darn bags are so expensive to store only one ounce in.
What would you do? I am really distraught over this. I don't know what to do. I just can't think of a solution. I want to use breast milk for the cereal.
Plus, when do I go to 3 times a day cereal and when do I start jar veggies?
