I have been working part time for 4 1/2 months, my dd is 7 1/2 months old. I pump constantly to ensure that she has enough (she's never had formula). When I am at work for 8 hours, which means about 9 hours in between nursings, she takes 3 bottles, for a total of 12 oz, and sometimes has a banana or something to go along. I was browsing through Kellymom.com and came across this:
"3. Babies need to drink milk when the mother is not at home.
Not true. Three or four good nursings during a 24 hour period plus a variety of solid foods gives the baby all he needs nutritionally, and thus he does not need any other type of milk when you are at your outside job. Of course, solid foods can be mixed with expressed milk or other milk, but this is not necessary."
What do you think about this? Do you think she could just eat solids while I'm at work? She definitely gets 3-4 good nursing sessions in at home.
