: Hi everyone!!
: I have a question concerning milk. My ds just turned 12 months and he goes to daycare during the day while I work. I am breastfeeding him in the mornings before I leave for work and in the afternoon when I pick him up from daycare. The problem is that he won't drink any whole milk during the day at daycare, only juice or water (and only sips of these). I try to give him whole milk yoghurt, cheese for breakfast to make up for this but I am concerned that he is not getting enough milk during the day. Any thoughts??? It is not possible for me to pump milk during the day due to the nature of my work.
: Thanks Sally and Ayrton

You can pump the night before, and freeze it till ready to use during the day. You can also start putting a little milk in his milk till its all reg milk an dhe doesnt notice as fast. This usually helps. Over here they start them on 1 or 2 percetent milk as whole milk can cause later on in life troubles,(founded). Even wic here gives 1 or 2 percent. So whole milk i dont think it such a big deal to give anyway.
Good luck!
