That. I have been a SAHM for 7 full months now. I just got a job offer and may be going back anywhere in the next two weeks but will definitely be back a month from now, full-time. I have very little milk saved up in my freezer (maybe 20 ounces?) and it is very difficult for me to pump in between feedings, since my LO still eats so often (it takes effort to get him to go even 2 hours w/o wanting to nurse, unless we are out of the house and he is distracted). Within an hour after nursing him I can maybe pump out 2 oz from each boob if I'm lucky. I'm stressed about going back for multiple reasons but especially b/c I am just used to nursing on demand since I've always been with him.
So, with that said, how much should I plan to have in my freezer for a typical workday of about 7:30 am to about 4 pm? My guy is 7 months tomorrow. He nurses very frequently but my pediatrician wants me to up his solid food intake so I can try to get him to go a little longer without nursing. His current bottle intake (if I leave the house for 2 hours) is about 4 oz. I want to make sure I have an amount that I can aim to pump and freeze so that I don't fall short, since I want to BF him for no less than a full year. He still nurses several times during the night. How much should I expect him to drink during my workday?
