Dd has been having some bad poops latly. Every time I change her she always has either green or tan really runny poops and she has really bad gas.

Another reason is I'm going back to work and I won't have time to pump cuz I'm a server/bartender. I know legally they have to give me time to pump but that's money out of my pocket from my tips.

Wish I could keep going but gonna have to stop probably next week

Update!
Ok so here's my plan on not stoping breast feeding. Dd may still have to have a little formula while I'm at work but I will feed her while I'm at home with her and try to pump when I'm at work if I need to. I realize that formula cost alot of money (not my first rodeo lol) I do have Wic that will help alot. And when I'm bartending my Togo person will help watch the bar and my tables if I need to go pump.
Dd is only a month old so no I really don't want to stop.

Have you tried eliminating dairy from your diet? The poops won't get any better with formula.
When you're working, you could encourage reverse cycling so you don't need to leave much milk while you're gone and make up for it when you're together.

Even if you choose not to pump at work and give formula during that time, you can still nurse when you're together.

Formula will be money out of your pocket too.

Do you eat any hidden dairy like casein and whey? Also soy protein and dairy protein are very close.

 Sounds like you need to cut something out of your diet. Will 15 minutes really take that much money out of your pocket?

Do you realize how expensive formula is? A minimum of $12/can and can go up to $30+ per can if she has to get special stuff. 1 can may last a few days each. I would rather lose the little tips that you "may" get that have to pay out tons on formula. Even if you can get WIC, they don't provide all the formula you need each month.

How old is baby? How long are your shifts?

Formula may compound the tummy issues, and will also be money out of your pocket. It doesn't have to be all or nothing.

Good luck, in whatever you decide. :)
