My parents will be babysitting next week when my husband and I have a rare date night. I nurse our son to sleep every night, but won't be able to that night. I won't have access to a breast pump either. Any suggestions? Do I substitute milk? I haven't introduced him to any non-breast milk yet (he's 14 months). eek! What do I do?
Well I'm sure there will be a wide range of responses, but I'll just tell you what we've done. I nurse him full before I leave, leave food he can eat, my mother will let him sip a regular cup of cow's milk, juice, or water before putting him to sleep, and then I'll nurse him when I pick him up. If it's not a long period (more than 4 hours) it shouldn't affect your supply if you nurse him when you get home.
Momma to DD (12/04) and DS (11/09) .
I survived 16 mos! Ask me about breastfeeding a baby with posterior tongue tie, high palate, and weak oral motor skills- whew!
