    how much does baby drink???

    for those of you who set my mind at ease regarding my storage goof-up, thanks!

    Now another question. I'm pumping because DH and I want to go back into IVF sooner rather than later (it took years to bring a living child into the world and [shocking] I'm not Spring Chicken ) so I'm freezing to make sure he gets a year ore more supply of breast milk.

    How much breastmilk does the average baby drink/day once solids are introduced? I'm just wondering how much milk I need to store up before I wean him.

    We introduced solids a few weeks ago (around 5-1/2 months) and Kaden takes 3 six oz bottles at the baby sitters and nurses at least 4 times a day.

    When I was thinking about the "freezer stash" thread, I calculated how much milk I have, and even though it sounds like a lot, it is only enough to feed him at the baby sitters for around 30 days. That wouldn't include the rest of the day or nights feedings.

    Good luck TTC again. I understand the rush. We are thinking of trying again in January, but we will try on our own first, since we conceived Kaden naturally.
