So I have a few questions.....

Here is some background info to get started.....i have breastfed Molly since she was born in February. I went back to work 3 days a week when she was 12 weeks. My husband watches her on the days that I work. She took a bottle of pumped breatmilk

Thank you so much for your very helpful reply. (this is the same person that posted, it just logged me in weird last time....)

We will definately try the cup trick.

So breastmilk is only bad if it smells REALLY bad?? Sometimes it smells sour and I just don't know if it is ok..... I guess that is my biggest concern.

And thanks for the advice on the solids as well. She totally does not get them for nutrition yet, just every once in a while for fun or whatever. I was wondering if I should be feeding her more yet but I am glad to hear not to. There are a lot of days that i JUST breastfeed her and I was hoping that was ok. I feel like there is a lot of pressure to feed babies food to soon. And I find myself falling for it, but it is good to be reassured.

Ok, thanks again!!!!
Annie & Molly
