    Default Breastfed baby starting daycare

    Hmmm a bottle of frozen and fresh is a good idea Boobycino.

    I've started a diary as to wher dd2 actually does in a day and I've work out that she only has 2 real boob feeds between 7am-12pm and lots of quick drinks (water would subs). So I'm going to leave DH with dd2 tomorrow and 2 milk bottles and we will see how that goes.

    If I send her with a bottle of frozen ebm from the week before if I take say 150ml out of the freezer at 7-8am would it be thawed and safe to drink at say 2pm?

    And Ill try to express a bottle the day before as well so she'll take one fresh and one frozen/thawed.

    That's what I used to do. Take it out of the freezer in the morning and then express for the following week during the day.

    I also sent formula sachet as a back up (I was overly neurotic though).

    I'm really not sure what she drinks in a sitting. This is all very optimistic really she's only ever actually taken more than a sip from a botle on one occasion.

    I think I'll also send a couple of spare bottles and sachets of formula in her bag.

    ..... I just realised she's going to need a day care bag...

    *deep breaths*

    Sixty billion.

    She's still fed on demand at home. She's a snacker. But I'm trying to get her onto some version of a routine before daycare (week and a half to go)

    I'd expect though she'd only need two feeds at most. I'd plan to feed her in the morning (6am) offer her a feed on the way (in the carrier) at like 8ish and plan to pick her up around 2pm to begin (before her second sleep) then see how we go ill pick her up after.

    I'm just working at home so I can work with what's best for her.

    I went back to work when DS was 10 mo, and he would need one milk feed while I was away. I used to express last thing at night and leave it in the fridge for the next day.

    Sixty billion made me laugh.

    Yea I started offering food/water/pacifier/cuddle first to work out what was a feed and what is a hunger/drink/snack/cuddle etc

    150ml will be plenty then.

    I'd definitely send the sachets for peace of mind though.

    She'll be fine (it's you who will be a mess).

    That's what I'm doing. Trying to not feed her to sleep any more. I'm also trying to nip this in the bud because she is more of a snacker than a comfort feeder. But since teething recently has been a bit of a comfort sucker and I think now is the time before it becomes a big habit.

    Something I've really enjoyed is she is really super cuddly and smoochy but not like jasper was if he had a cuddle he wanted a feed too.

    But she's much more the issue she just thinks it's always there so she can have 5 sucks, pull off and play and come back 10 minutes later.
