Hi Meeta Mishra! You could breastfeed the baby before leaving and after coming back. Avoid bottles and try giving cerelac and biscuit mashed in milk or custard made in milk or other milk based recipes with Katori spoon. As your baby is 6 months + u could begin with other recipes too such as rice an dal water, stewed apple, boiled and mashed pumpkin etc. Gradually with passing time u could thicken the consistency of food being served and give dalia, khichri,kheers etc .Breastfeed can be continued even beyond 1st year which will boost his immunity levels . Hope this helps!

Expressing milk with a comfortable breast pump is the best option. I read this blog and found it to be helpful. I m also a working mother. https://www.parentune.com/parent-blog/breastfeedingwhat-you-need-to-know/763
