Video paced bottle feeding - Jessica Barton

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UH4T70OSzGs

Breastfeeding for a year while working outside the home -- caregivers/daycare/nanny/family MUST watch this video and read handout on paced bottle feeding. Otherwise baby will "want more" from the bottle than mother is pumping. You only feed what you pumped the day before. Not one drop more. Slowing down bottle and letting baby feel full is paced bottle feeding. How can a baby be happy and growing on weekends with mom but on work day the baby is "starving" when bottle fed? Don't overfeed your breastfed baby while you are at work.

If you are breastfeeding only and making 24-30 oz per 24 hours - then you can supplement yourself rather than infant in Vitamin D. 6000 IU Vitamin D3 plus 400 IU in your prenatals. If you are mixed feeding breast + formula less than 33 oz per day: baby must be supplemented 400 IU per day. If you are formula feeding less than 33 oz/day in the first year of life - those mothers must supplement baby 400 IU per day.
