The childcare center wants information from a doctor or reputable source. And no, they haven't spoken to the mother about this. Grr..
A bf baby needs 1-1.5oz per hour that he/she is away from mom. Solids aren't even necessary at that age so 1 jar would be plenty.

ETA: I'm on my phone but Kellymom is a good source.
