I'm over at 3-6 months now, but I thought maybe some of you ladies might have experience in this! Shed some wisdom
We are moving this weekend (ugh), and my MIL has kindly offered to
watch the girls at her house from Friday evening to Sunday evening. This
will be the longest I've been away from DD2, and the longest she's been
without either DH or I around. I trust my MIL, so I think she'll
survive. Now my 2 year old around my SIL's kid, might not survive. She
is just a terror, and is beyond hurtful to my DD1 (she has gone as far
to whip her with a willow stick multiple times, I am not excited that
they all live on the same ranch.)
But, I am pumping away, and I
am not really sure how much BM I should have minimally. I really don't
want to end up having her drink formula. Right now I have 45 oz, and if I
pump out 7 oz like I have been every night, I should have 28 more by
Friday.73 oz has GOT to be more than enough, right? I can't imagine her
EVER going through all of that in two days.
They live two hours away, so I figured we'd drive up, I'd feed her, then leave.
And how often do you pump when LO is away? When they normally eat, or more often, since a pump isn't as efficient at getting BM out... I just don't want to lose my supply.I am totally over thinking this, aren't I?
