My daughter is 10 months old and she is a bf baby,  I have to go back to wook soon and I really didnt want to get her on formula.  I for some reason have a very hard time pumping so I was thinking I could feed her before and after work but while she is in daycare im trying to think what I can do?  She is the only one outta my four babies that was bf so long so I was wishing she was maybe old enough to maybe give her like 1 -2 cups of milk and the rest juice while she was at daycare!!  What did u do??

Yep...11 months.  I breastfed for like 8 months (stopped because got pregnant), did formula for 3, then started milk.

9 months but only with meals and she still got formula.  unless your child is eating really well you need to use formula.  Also I still haven't given DD juice it has alot of acid( bad for teeth and stomach, alot of sugar and almost no nutritional value)  IMO you will be making a huge mistake to give your Lo milk and juice instead of formula or pumped breast milk.

 1 year is what pediatricians recommend.

At a year.  If she's breastfed and you feel the need to wean her, why not goat's milk rather than cow's milk?  My daughter was a FF baby at the time so I don't know how BF babies do versus FF babies when they're switched to cow's milk.

She is a very good eater!!  That is why I think only 1-2 cups a day!!  I would love to pump but like I said I have a hard time doing it!!!  I can be soooo full and only pump like 2 oz!!  And juice I only give her 1 cup (half juice and half water) a day!

My baby is 11 months and I started mixing milk in with his formula about a week ago. He will be 1 in about 2 and a half weeks so I wanted to get him used to it.
