Well, my fears came to be and I'm in trouble. I returned to work eight weeks ago and I am not able to keep up with my 8 mo old's needs. She is on limited solids and two 7 oz bottles a day while I'm at work. I nurse in the morning and again at night and try to pump 4 to 5 times a day. I don't give any bottles on the weekends.
Today I was only able to pump 5 oz which means she will get formula tomorrow.
She gets very frustrated while nursing before bed, frequently pulling off and latching back on. She doesn't seem to be content.
I really don't want to supplement with formula but I also do not have a job that I can pump more than 3x a day and I have a toddler to chase after as well so my pumping is limited to 4 or 5 times total.
I read somewhere that oatmeal may help so I will try it for breakfast, any other suggestions?
