My aunt passed away very suddenly 2 days ago. I have 3 kids ages 4, 2, and 4 months. My inlaws are watching the 4 and 2 year old but the 4 month old will not take a bottle so I was actually thinking of bringing her. I will be gone 5-6 hours. My mom thinks its terribly inappropriate to bring a baby to a funeral and just tells me I should just keep trying a bottle. Well, the funeral is in 2 days so what do I do if I can't get her to take a bottle in 2 days?
The wake and funeral are back to back so my mom is saying skip the wake and go to the funeral and my husband can stay in the car with the baby. My aunt's death hit us all very hard and I really want to be there for all of it and I want to be there for my cousins and uncle but I also don't want my baby's presence to be a disruption. What would you guys do? I am sad and grieving the loss of my aunt but I know it doesn't compare to how my cousins must feel about losing their mom so I want to do what is right and I don't want to be insensitive by bringing the baby. I also wanted to add that my cousin has a 4 and 2 year old but I don't know if they will be there for any of it.
