I have a wedding coming up out of town and won't be taking DS (8 months). I am BFing 4 times daily which will mean he will miss 3 BFs that day. It's making me feel sick to my stomach about leaving him. I tried EBM in a bottle recently with no luck and I have been reluctant to try again. I know I have to get used to a bottle eventually as he will be going to daycare in a few months, however, I just can't wrap my head around it. What if he is starving all day and refuses to take the bottle? I don't want to distress him without me being there to comfort him.
Any tips? Suggestions? I haven't had any time away from him since he was born and I know I need to have some time for myself but I'm thinking I should come home early to give him his last BF.
Also, will I have to express at the wedding so I don't explode? I'm not sure if there will be anywhere at the wedding venue I can express.
