Hi

Have you introduced a bottle to baby yet, if not...this would be a good time to start.

Also how old is your baby?

The only thing you can do, is store as much milk during those times that you can pump. During this week, you should pump extra so that you can store milk for baby.

Some babies will refuse a bottle while mom is at work, this is okay, that is if your baby starts breastfeeding more in the evenings when you come home. Some babies will take in more calories in the evenings to compensate.

If you see that you do not have enough milk (because your supply might go down), you will need to start supplementing with formula or find out about donor breast milk.
