I'll be returning to work shortly and wondering what to do about DS's milk intake during the day.
Currently, he nurses twice during the time that I would be away to work (both times before naps). He will be 1 year old, and does not take a bottle. So I'll have to have him take milk from a sippy cup from the sitter while I'm at work. Because he doesn't take a bottle, I don't pump but I do HAVE a pump so I could try (not sure how much milk I'll get.)
My question is this: given that he'll be over a year and that I am still going to nurse on-demand when I am home, would you pump at work or would you just offer cows milk (or some alternative to that, and if so what) during the day? I'm not keen on pumping, but I'm also not keen on giving cows milk! FWIW, we have no history of allergies and so far DS has done fine with cheese and yogurt (but I know these are easier to digest).
