I have never had any success with pumping. I also suspect that my supply is dipping....he only wets 3-4 diapers a day and they are not very wet. He poops normally. He is getting 3 solid meals a day and sometimes snacks. He loves his solids!
I nurse him 3-4 times during the day and 3 -4 times at night. He wakes up every 3 hours or so. He seems to do his best nursing at bedtime and night.
I have been giving him a sippy of formula after dinner for a few weeks now to get him used to it. Other than that, I'm not sure what I should be doing to prepare him for daycare, when he won't be getting any breastmilk during the day. SHould I be doing less feedings during the day? More formula? He will not take a bottle at all but will drink from a sippy. Do I just wait until he is closer to a year and introduce cow's milk or goat's milk? Also, I currently nurse him down for all his naps. I don't know how he's going to nap at daycare.
Any advice would be appreciated
