To make a long story short, I work 50 hours/week and can't pump enough to keep up with my daughter's demands. My milk supply is decreasing and while I still make plenty to feed her while I am at home and pump some of what she needs, we are using about 5 bags/week. At this rate eI will run out of frozen milk by the time she is 9 months old, so I was just wondering. Is it better to give her only breastmilk until it runs out, then give her formula while I am gone, or should I start doing some formula now to stretch out the length of time she has breastmilk?
Note: She will still be nursing about 4 times a day, even once I do run out of frozen milk.
