    Default Enough breast milk?

    DS2 has started two days per week childcare as I go back to work and is refusing to drink EBM. I know he *can* drink from a bottle, and has drank EBM successfully from a bottle in the past.

    He is nine and a half months so is having three meals of solids per day plus snacks. At home I'd generally breast feed around five times per 24-hours. My question is this - if he refuses bottles whilst at daycare (say between 8:30am and 5:00pm) but I feed him before and after these hours - will be be getting enough?

    You might find he makes up for it over night or in the evenings if he needs it he will let you know! Sounds like he is getting enough food, have you tried ebm in a sippy cup?

    Well he did have lots of feeds last night so I'm sure he's getting enough. Sent a sippy cup (which he's used to; it's his water cup) to daycare today which he has refused too! Guess I'll persevere for a bit longer!
