Hi all. I work weekends, so my husband stays with our son. I have been pumping for him (obviously) but now our "stockpile" is low. My husband needs 5 to 6 bottles while I am gone, and as of today (Friday) I only have 3 for my husband. I usually pump in the morning, which gives me 3 ounces, then I pump at night, which gives me an ounce. Hopefully I will be able to pump enough tomorrow and at work for him to have milk on Sunday. Now I know that you are not supposed to give babies whole milk until after they turn one, but if it gets down to the wire, is whole milk better then formula to give. My son eats tons of solids during the day, but he is used to breastfeeding 6 times a day (every 2 hours). He does go longer without a bottle, probably because I'm not home and he can't smell it. LOL Should I just tell my husband to feed him lots of solids and if he gets cranky, to give him water? I don't want to introduce juice yet. I'm just wondering what all your opinions are. Thank you!
