DS is going to start a new daycare next week that is more convenient location wise for us. ?At his current center, he can start a bottle of breastmilk and finish it whenever like we do here at home since breastmilk is good at room temp for hours. ?We went to his new center today to meet his teachers, etc. and we were told that they only allow bottles (formula or breastmilk) to be out for 1 hour--after an hour, they dump it! ?I wanted to cry!!!--I do not want to have ounces and ounces of breastmilk dumped every day!
Has anyone else dealt with this issue? ?DS generally takes about 6 oz every 3 hours but sometimes he's hungry in 2 hours but won't take 6 oz. ?So, I'm thinking about sending a lot of 3 oz bottles? I'm not sure what else to do. ?We love everything about this center so far except this issue. It just kills me to think of my breastmilk going to waste, especially since I have been pumping all of it for him this long (EPer)!
?BTW--the center says they have to toss after 1 hour to maintain their 5 star status--I'm thinking, really??
