Right now my son just hit the 4-month mark. In 3 months I'll be going back to work, but I really want to continue breast feeding him (at that point he'll be 7 months old). He strongly resists taking a bottle, though we tried really hard to get him to take one a day. He just wont.
I just got a job as a university prof, and will be teaching 18 hours a week (plus 4-6 office hours) and hopefully can do my prep work from home. It works out to roughly being away from the house for 4-6 hours per day. Maximum I'd be gone, without being able to come home and feed him would be 8 hours... but that'd be a rare day.
DS is a total snacker - though I've never tried to put him on a schedule (no need, I'm home all the time). He's already showing strong interest in food, though I haven't let him try it yet.
I want to know how long (at 7 months old) he can reasonably go without breast milk - if he's being fed solids between feedings.
