I'm going to be separated from my (then) 8.5 month old DD in a few weeks. For approx 12 hours.
My issue is that she only will only take milk by BF. She eagerly takes water from a sippy cup, and is somewhat happy eating solids (but not a big eater)
My question.. Do you think it is ok for me I be away from her, and miss a few breastfeeds? During that time she will be drinking water and eating purées.
I will express enough BF for her babysitter (my mum) to attempt to bottle feed or give her milk in the sippy (both of which I've tried and failed numerously)
Is it ok for a baby of her age to go 12 hrs without milk? She's always been so reliant on my breast. And as much as I've tried, I cannot change that..
