say a woman is telling her ex that she is breast feeding her 1 month old , hence why he can not feed him. (she is also telling him that she is not pumping as it 'deters' milk flow). 

they go to court , where they are at for 4 hours ...she does not have the baby.

Man than asks for a bottle his next visit , and is told that the baby is 'not' being bottle fed ...and is only given a bottle when he is being 'topped' up with formula mixed in with breast milk...

We are trying to figure out what the heck is the logical answer here , because she is not giving straight out answers. 

What would you say is going on?

I only breast fed for 3 months.
But I don't understand your question.

Sounds like excuses to me. Unless she brought baby with her to the courthouse (or at least near enough to nurse, she's giving bottles. Also, if she's "topping off" baby after nursing she won't be nursing long.

Btw- I nurse exclusively. No bottles at all. But it's because I can't pump much and we don't use formula. Always straight from the tap

Excuses

She can pump after baby is done and save that milk.

It is my understanding that this is common practice - that the fathers do not get overnight visitation until the child is weaned or about a year. Makes sense to me. Is that what you wanted to know?

This....I know when DD2 was a month old she waa eating like every two hours.

And for me, at least, pumping increased my milke. I was like a damn cow. At least 4 ozs from each every time....

I'm bf my 1 month old today I didn't have any pumped and had to run to the dr but couldn't take the kid as he is sick at the moment and has to stay by the humidifier. I fed him before I left and ran out the door long story short I was gone 4.5 hrs baby was fine he didn't even fuss but it still broke my heart not leaving food for him.

Yeah I do not understand that either sounds like lies to me. I mean if she is not pumping how is she 'topping off' with a mix of formula AND BM?

I bf my twins for about 3 months but my flow was not enough for them so I switched to ff but I did bottle feed when I pumped because when both woke up at night crying I had to tend to both so I would rotate who got bottle and who got breast each feeding!

This baby I will strictly bf!
