    Default Heading Back to Work

    I am heading back to work next Monday and I am worried about pumping and making sure I have enough for Sean. How do I know how much to leave the babysitter? I have milk frozen in 2oz and 3oz baggies. I have 10 baggies right now and will get more when I am back to work and pumping 3xs a day at work. I have no idea how much Sean eats, how do I know? He will be 6wks old. Any tips for me while heading back to work?

    When I did it with dd1, I had daycare give 2oz every 2 hours and went from there. We upped the amount of BM every few weeks and went longer in between feedings after a month or so. I think dd1 got 4oz every 3-4 hours by 5 or 6 months old.

    Thanks Dunegirl! I think we will start there and I will give her a little extra just in case I guess. Mariposa, I am not looking forward to it in one aspect, I don't want to leave my little man, but then again I can't wait to do SOMETHING!! I want to do something more than nurse and lounge around the house. lol
