Re: How much milk to send
My suggestion is to send one or two more bottles than what you think she will use. It also never hurts to have a bag or two of frozen milk in the freezer just in case there is a reason why you were not able to pump enough, she eats more, or there is an emergency that requires another family member to pick her up. From my experience working with infants in the daycare setting some parents over stock for their child to the extreme (like you think you need a whole fridge just for one kid) while you have some parents that bring just enough for the day and you are hoping that three bottles will be enough for those 6 or 7 hours. I would rather be in the middle and have enough thawed for the day with a little bit of wiggle room.
