So my DH and I are going away next February to a friends wedding where we will be staying overnight in a holiday park.
DH's parents were going to stay at the holiday park aswell so they can look after DD for the day whilst we are at the wedding venue, until we go back there at night after the reception.
DD is 6 wks atm and will be 7 months old when we go away. I plan to exclusively breastfeed for at least 6 months so at the time of the wedding she will probably be starting solids but will still need EBM (I would assume) because she will be weaning (again only assuming) and may need it so DH's parents can put her to sleep,etc.
My question is:
1. if i plan to give her EBM in the future should I introduce it occasionally now so she doesnt refuse it when she is older(6-7month) ?
2. Is it possible to exclusively breastfeed for 6 months without using any EBM ? Because I planned to do that but that does mean I cannot allow bub to be away from me for any amount of time in case she needs a feed...am I being realistic? Or is it best for bub ?
3. Is it ok to use EBM so DH can feed her on the occasion I need to go out and do something...or is this being selfish? I feel guilty doing this, i know its silly and more of a personal choice rather than whats right but I would like to know other's choices and experiences.
Sorry for the long post, i have so many questions !? Any advice is greatly appreciated
