Help. I'm matron of honor for my sister's wedding next month. I told her and my mom months ago that I needed to breastfeed dd between the ceremony and the reception. My mom even promised to find me a room in the hotel to use. Now, they tell me there's no time between the photos after the ceremony and the presentation of the party before dinner. We'll have to go from 2:30 to 7:30 pm w/o nursing, missing her dinnertime. She'll survive, but she'll be upset. I can't just pop into the bathroom for a few nips because they've got me strapped into a dress with a laced up top - no easy access. DD is 10 mths and eats some finger food but hates baby food, has never had a bottle, and hasn't figured out a cup yet. My mom knows this but said I have four weeks to come up with something -- I think she's stressed over the wedding in general. Dh says I should just skip the presentation of the party and cake-cutting ceremony and be late for the dinner.
