DS (3y) is having surgery (tonsils and adenoids out) and will have to stay over night. Originally DP was going to stay with him and I was to take DD 8mths home. She is bf and wakes for a feed 2-3 times. Now the problem seems, DS is more and more mummy's boy and we are worried he won't settle with DP in a strange and uncomfortable situation like hospital, especially when in pain/unwell. DP also hates hospital and quite frankly won't cope well himself on fold out bed, nurses coming in ect.
I think I should really stay with DS, but have never been away from DD. DP reckons he can cope with her crying for hours if need be, he will offer her a feed of course and cuddles and as a last resort drive in the car. Now I really hate and have trouble expressing and was thinking for that one night she could have formula. Who has had to be away from a bf baby overnight and what did you do?? How did it go? Should I grit my teeth and pump? Was going to use a sippy cup, don't have any bottles... Is that ok?
This is going to be a sh&t night, I can't bear to be away from DD yet, but also desperately want to be with DS to comfort him
