One day last week, I didn't have enough milk pumped for my day at work. We didn't have any formula or money to buy it, so I told DH to water down her bottles just a tad bit so she would make it until I got home. I seriously couldn't think of anything else to do. And it was just a tiny bit, like less than an ounce per three ounce bottle was water. So he told me when I got home that she did great with that. He told me just a few minutes ago that he had been trying an experiment based on that since then. He's been putting a tiny bit of water in one bottle each day since then, and he says she seems happier and spits up less after that bottle in comparison to the others. How bad is this and why? She's still doing fine with dipes and nursing wonderfully. Is it possible that my milk is too rich for her? She's almost four months, btw.
