I have unexpectedly been offered a job which includes the ability to work part time in a fairly family friendly environment. I have been able to arrange some temporary childcare at home until something more permanent comes along, but my main concern is that I am still breastfeeding DD2 who is now 7 months old, and am unsure about how we will go leaving her at home with a carer. She has taken some EBM from a bottle in the past, but only ever in the evening on the rare occasion that I have gone out, and never in place of a normal day time feed. She has started on solids, but as I have posted in another thread, she is less than enthusiastic about them at present, so I can't rely on her having solids in my absence to keep her going. If I accept the job I will start in about 2 weeks time so any suggestions on how to prepare - both her and me - for the change to bottles in my absence will be gratefully accepted. I am looking for advice on when to express, which bottles to use, teats, and any other tips you can think of.
I should note that I am keen to avoid using formula if possible.
Thanks in anticipation
