My little man is about 16 months (on Wednesday). He's always been a hungry boy and thankfully I've had a pretty good milk supply and still do for the most part, but his needs are beginning to exceed my supply.
When I went back to work at about 9 weeks, he was drinking 4oz every three hours. Then about three weeks in we had to up it to 5oz. Then another few weeks later we increased it to 6oz! I'm having a hard time keeping up.
For those of you possibly dealing with a similar issue, would you vote adding rice to breast milk or adding one feeding of formula when I'm unable to meet that 18 oz. demand during his full day at daycare. Obviously breast milk is my ultimate preference, but clearly that is just not quite enough for him anymore and I'm trying to figure out what the next best option is.
He has his 4 mo. apt coming up a week from Friday and I intend to discuss all this with the pedi then (or perhaps I should just call), but in the meantime, just looking for advice from other moms.
