i need some advice from those mommies who has ever leave bb for more than 4days.
i am fully breastfeeding my son who is 8mnths old by the time i leave him in march.
my concern is my son gnna b fine for the 4 days?
my most MAJOR CONCERN is will he "rememba" me or my "smell" as i wld still 1 2 to cntinue 2 breastfeed him directly (latching)????
I AM WORRIED TAT AFTER THE 4 DAYS, HE WILL NOT B ABLE TO / NOT FAMILIAR TO FEED DIRECTLY / LATCH ON..!!!
THIS IS MY VERY 1ST TIME TO LEAVE BOTH MY SONS TIS LONG..!!
i really hope to hear from some mommies here..!

It's very likely he will be unwilling to latch on as bottle feeding doesn't need jaw exercise and is much easier for him. I had to bring my gal back to Thomson Parent Craft to help her latch back on me after just 1 day of bottle feeding! My advise if you really have no choice, don't bottle feed during these 4 days. Cup feed her. That's what Parent Craft made us do to open her jaw.
