My ds is 3 1/2 mo old, a healthy 15 lbs and I have to start back to work full time on Monday :( I have been trying to pump a reserve supply of milk white working part time but I have been unable to keep up with his growing demand AND a pumping schedule. Every time I leave him with someone he wants to nurse as soon as he sees me. And I usually have to give him the milk that I pumped while I was away.

I have no option other than to start supplementing for a while, hopefully I can get a breast milk stash set up when i get on a regular pumping schedule. My question is what type of formula would you recommend while I supplement? Are there any different nutritional needs for a baby who is only part time on formula? Any advice would be welcome!
