I am going to pump for my 5 month old to have my milk for Black Friday (Friday after Thanksgiving, going shopping in the madness and he is staying w/great grandma). The problem here is, I don't know how much he is drinking so I have to leave a can of formula for him just in case all of my milk is gone before I return from the madness of shopping. I'm wondering how much your baby is drinking at 5 months old. My son is having solids twice a day, but it does not replace or shorten any feedings. I'd prefer him not to have to use any of the formula because he has reflux and an intolerance to dairy, but I do have a can of Similac Sensitive.

Thanks! :)

Thank you! That was very helpful. I have not left him for this long and I am very nervous, I'm hoping I will be a little better about this if I know he will have enough of my milk instead of formula.
