I'm a FTM, and my daughter will be starting daycare in 2 weeks, when she's 12 weeks old.
I've been breastfeeding, and she's been getting on average one bottle (about 4 oz usually) of pumped milk per day from my husband in the evenings. I've been pumping daily and have been able to build up a small supply in the freezer. I also hope to keep being able to pump enough while I'm at work to avoid needing to supplement with formula, but I don't yet know how much is "enough".
She's also not really on any sort of feeding schedule, since I feed her on demand. Some days, she'll go 3 hours between feedings, other times, only an hour and a half.
Long story short, my questions are:
1. How do I make a best guess about how much milk to send with to daycare each day, since I'm not sure how much she's actually eating when on the breast? Should I also get formula, just in case she goes through all of the breast milk?
2. Should I try to get her on a schedule these next 2 weeks, or just keep feeding her on demand?
I'm having nightmares about her screaming all day at daycare when she doesn't get enough to eat!
