im going back to work next week. been unable to express for the last few months (anxiety mostly but not achieving let down with the pump). i am so very very pro breastfeeding. i dont understand formula. my plan, which was supported by my ABA cousellor and doctor was to continue feeding outside of work hours and ds just having solids and water at childcare. he is 7 months old. we are doing BLW and he eats like a horse. unfortunately today at my MCHN appt it became apparent that he is not putting on enough weight. only 400g in 4 months sad her recommendations is that he does not miss that important mid day milk feed.
im stuck. i have enough frozen ebm for one week. long term i have no idea. the MCHN suggested a small formula feed at childcare, like 50-100 mls until he can start cows milk in a few months.
so, which formula is good?
i wanted to feed until at least two, this decision has been very very difficult so please, in your responses keep that in mind. i have looked into other bf options (including milk donations!).
