My son is 14 months and nurses 4-6 times a day still. 2 in the morning, once before his two naps and once before bedtime, he may sometimes squeeze one more out of me.
Dh just called and asked me if I wanted to go to a company thing for him.. I don't have enough time to pump and doubt id get much as I haven't pumped in a long time.
Ds may want milk later depending on what time dh and I get home. Can I sub my bm for almond milk? I know he's ok w almond milk bc he's had it in things before (smoothies etc). My supply is rarely effected by a one time missed feeding so ill be fine on my end, just full. (Reason for almond milk is bc I'm allergic to dairy and am not giving him dairy until he can talk and tell me if he's reacting to it)
What are your thoughts on subbing almond milk for bm??
Thanks in advance!

I would just nurse before leaving and leave almond milk in a sippy of bottle and nurse when you get home.

Yeah.. Ds is leaving earlier than we are bc ss has to go to football practice so I can't nurse right before we leave (MIL is watching both). I'm definitely nursing when I get home lol! I'd die all night.. Ugh! Thanks :)

I use coconut or rice milk for the most part since we're running low on frozen milk and my pump broke. Honestly, my sons the same age and even though he nurses more frequently, there are days where I'm away from him for eight hours and he's fine with just a few cups of milk in between meals.

I actually wish she'd cutback a little whenever I sit down is apparently time for her to nurse!

At this age he should be fine with that and some solids until you get home. Have a good time!
