I am heading back to work in a few weeks and know I have been extremely lucky to be off this long. I’m feeling overwhelmed about milk when I’m gone (along with a million other things!!).
My plan is to breastfeed before work and after work (about 8.5 hours in between) and I have a tiny bit of pumped milk to leave but I also want to slowly transition to whole cows milk. She’s also eating solids and slowly building up more of an appetite for them.
1. How did you gradually transition to cows milk (if you’ve done this)? How much did you give at a time?
2. How much milk will she need while I’m gone (breast or cows)? Right now she nurses 4ish times per day and lots at night as she is still up quite a bit.
Any advice is so appreciated!
