(XP on Working Moms board)
Today was my first day back at work and DS only ate 5.5 oz (pumped BM) in the 8 hours I was gone! He was with my mom today, but will start daycare next week.
I nursed him at 5 am.
He was dropped off to my mom's house at 6:30 am.
Drank 3 oz. at 8 am.
Drank 2.5 oz at 1 pm.
I got to her house at 2:30 and nursed him right away, he emptied BOTH my breasts and nursed for a while.
My mom said he seemed very happy and content all day and barely fussed. Napped like he normally does. He just wasn't interested in eating any more. She said she offered the bottle every half hour or so and he just wasn't interested (except at 8 am and 1 pm).
Is this ok? He's been nursing a lot this afternoon since I got home. As long as he gets his 24 oz. or so in a 24 hour period and gains weight, does it matter that he goes this long stretch without eating a lot?
