I'm a teacher...I go back to work in a month...my baby will be just over 9mo when he goes to daycare. I pumped for him last semester, not problem. And I'll do it again this semester if I have to, but I've been reading and a lot of the literature says it is okay to give a little cow's milk (homo) at this age if he's going to continue nursing, which I more than expect to be nursing a bunch in the evenings and nights with him. That's what happened with my last one (though she wasn't in daycare until after a year old.)
Anyhow, my provider has said, don't forget he'll probably need something for a bottle for naptime, etc, and we definitely don't want to give him formula (dh is probably a bigger bf advocate than I am, lol).
So what do y'all think? I haven't decided to HUTH yet, but I do want to see what feasible options I have.
eta...he does eat some table food, at least a meal a day. We skipped infant cereal and baby food and went pretty much straight to cream of rice and small pieces of acceptable foods.
