As and when you visit your home ,you can breast feed the baby .Try to go 2 times .You feed the baby at 11.30am and 2.30pm.You feed before leaving home and feed as soon as you come back.
This Will suffice the baby's need.
In case you have more milk ,you express the milk (EBM-Expressed Breast Milk) as popularly called.Preserve in refrigerator and reheat indirectly through a bowl of water to the required temperature and feed through a cup and spoon by the help of care givers ,in case baby requires inaddidition in your absence.

Hello... You should not give any food supplement for baby till 6 months.. Mother milk is rich in immunoglobulin, protein which will not be obtained by any other foods.. Express breast milk store it in bottle and give as per child's demand . But don't give any food till 6 months get over...
