Mmmmm.... magical chocolate! I might just sling a babe that young during the ceremony... a 2 month old would probably sleep all the way through being that close to his/her mama and then if he/she needed to nurse you could wear a 2 piece dress and pop 'em on the boob without anyone noticing (ah, magical slings!!!).

Magical chocolate and magical slings... get those and go if you want to!

love and peace.

mama to two girls and due in November!

I flew with my unvaxed 8 week old to my sister's wedding - it was fine - no issues - I nursed during takeoff and landing and other than that - she slept the whole time...
The 2 hour flight was much better than being in a car for 10 hours and having to stop every hour or so to nurse....
As for the ceremony - I was matron of honor - and I altered my dress to be a skirt instead and wore a nursing top - DH held DD for the ceremony (thought she cried the whole time) - I would maybe pump and have a bottle ready in case your babe gets really hungry and cranky...
I say go....

you guys are the BEST!

yes, i already have two slings they are not very magical, though, *sigh*

they are super plain, black and khaki - i wanted to encourage DH to use 'em too.

i guess i better order a nice *girly* one for myself flowers...polka dots...

also - i talked to my friend last night and she was SUPER COOL about it. she doesn't give a darn if i am in the wedding or not, just as long as i am there so i am on a "wait and see" basis....

i guess that's why she's my best friend (awwwwww)

now if i could only bring my very cute cloth diapers. but why make things extra difficult, right!? or has anyone attempted to rinse these things in a hotel sink?!

living in the with DH, DS (5-30-07) and DD (9-26-09) don't forget the dogs, cat, fish, toads and geckos.....

Bring them! Almost all hotels have guest laundry facilities now. We always bring our cloth when we're away from home.

Yeah, I have never actually laundered CDs on a trip, but on long road trips we've made use of the coin-op w/d for our own clothes many a time.

Cool, I'm glad your friend is a "keeper".

As for cloth diapers, I guess I 'cheated' I always brought a few along for 'showing off' but also usually did use disposables unless it was a car trip. Get a good wetbag and double it up with a garbage bag if you are bringing the dipes so you can just put everything in the wetbag/garbage bag and repack it w/o it worrying about getting to the rest of your suitcase.

Really, you'll know what you feel like at the time, but packing, imo, with babies is a nightmare, I'm horrible at it for myself and the amount of stuff I brought for Josh was incredible. Thank goodness I won't have 2 in diapers at the same time, lol.

Usually most of it doesn't get used, and I always forgot something that I needed. But it all works out!
