I bring bottles to daycare- but they also keep a few bags in the freezer in case she is extra hungry one day.
I have to admit though that I have been carrying a 2 oz sample bottle of pre-mixed formula in my diaper bag since we left the hospital for "Just in case." Seems pretty silly now since she's never had formula and I could BF her if I need to. I just realized that that case of formula expires in June and I should donate it to the local women's shelter before it goes bad. I have to admit that it did make me feel better going out and about at the beginning to have it there. After nearly 4 months of successful BFing I guess I can let go of my 2 oz of formula
He doesn't go to daycare and has only stayed at the grandparent's house for short periods. I usually bring an estimated amt of BM, then I say to go ahead and feed him some solids (I keep a jar or two there) if he is still hungry. I also have a container of powdered formula in my diaper bag just in case, although we have never had to use any. I have a high lipase issue with milk, so frozen milk only keeps for a short period of time.
No, but I do usually send more than I think is needed (though sometimes it is all gone). I also have a single serving packet of formula mix in her diaper bag, just in case. But in 3 months, I've never had to use it.
No, the times that I gave the sitter extra in case he was hungry, she just gave it to him because I gave her another bottle and she thought he had to drink it all. So since then, he doesn't get extra at the sitters, I ask her to give him water if he seems thirsty.
in the beginning i sent an extra bottle every day, but he never drank it, so i rotated it for the 1st bottle the following day. at 8 months when i started having the sitter feed him lunch, i stopped packing the extra milk. now he can drink water if he's thirsty. he's so predictable with his milk intake.
