Dear Charlotte

Four days without milk is rather a long time for a baby at six months of age, and I would therefore recommend that your mother bottlefed him. I hope and trust that your mother will succeed, after all he did take 30 ml., in other words your son does not find difficulties in drinking from a bottle, technically speaking.

It is probably the taste of the formula that he does not like, and I suggest that you try some of the different products available on the market in order to see which one your son prefers.

Mother's milk has a sweeter taste than formula. Try to add 1 teaspoonful of sugar in 100 ml of formula.

Try also to let him drink from a cup, although his milk intake would be very limited this way. Try to express some of your own milk to see whether he accepts it when you are away.

Pay attention to the fact that you need to express milk in the period you are away from home, in order to maintain the milk production but also to prevent mastitis.

Good luck, and I hope you will enjoy the course:o)

Kind regards,

Helen Hansen
