I am at a point physically and mentally where I am looking to reduce pumping at work to 1x if not eliminate it all together. I love bfing and could see myself doing it for an extended time but I can't do this whole pumping thing anymore. I appreciate any advice but this was a hard decision to make so please do not try to encourage me to pump more often at work.
Here is what I am trying to do:
6/6:30 am - breastfeed
9am- lo gets formula
12pm- I pump at work and lo gets bm/formula
3pm-lo gets formula
The only difference on the weekends would be that I would feed him directly at 12pm and maybe offer him the breast at 9am and 3pm before following with a bottle of formula. Does this sound like it can work? Also, how much formula should he be getting since the calculation is different for bm and formula?
I had an easy time breastfeeding while on maternity leave and no supply issues except possibly the 8/8:30pm session lately.
