I'll be gone two times a week for 6-7 hours at a time. By the time I start this class my son will be 6 months old.....
Does anyone have any suggestions on how to get him to drink formula? I don't want to totally go off breastfeeding, so I just want to get him used to formula just for those two spans of time a week that I'm gone.
If I pump, how much milk do you think i'll need to pump to supply him for those hours? (6-7 hours)....
Please, don't post just to tell me not to put him on formula. I just need opinions on the specific question i've asked about...thank you!

If you can, I would try to pump extra now and freeze it for later. For the 6-7 hours, I would have 2-3 bottles for his caretaker to have on hand during this time.
