@englishteachermama @catybug820 eventually the people who live next door came home and turned it off... after 18 hours... so glad it was the day they got back
I don't see this in place for this week but I need to vent. My husband is a best man in a wedding on 5/13. Lucas will be 6 weeks ... the in laws are all invited to the wedding. They keep saying they got a hotel for the soul reason of taking him back to the hotel room so DH and I can have some time to ourselves at the wedding. Lucas is EBF I only started pumping this week and currently only have 1 bag of frozen milk in the freezer and he's only supposed to have a bottle once or twice a week as it is anyways. They say oh he can come with us after you feed him he'll be fine. I'm just not comfortable with my 6 week old leaving my side in a different town to go to a hotel with my in laws esp when I'm EBF. Sorry it's not happening it almost makes me cry the thought of someone taking my baby even if it is my in laws. I know at some point I'm going to have to be okay with this but not at 6 weeks... ugh please tell me I'm not being ridiculous
@ashley14598 You need to do what you are comfortable with, but I will say that I have left DD with my ILs 3 times to go out and do errands and once to go out to eat with DH to just get a break and it really helped me feel less like a milk factory and more human. My Mom died when DD was 10 days old and we were forced to have to leave her with someone for s few hours when she was just shy of 2weeks old. This ripped the bandaid off early and made me a bit less hesitant to be away from her. We are EBF and I have pumped for them to be able to feed her if absolutely necessary, but I have not been away long enough to skip a feeding. I also will go back to work so need my DD to be able to take a bottle.Again, you do you, but it's not a crime to get away for a bit even if BF.
@MsTurney @kjd291 @Ilovealbert @Lilies5/28/06 @kris523sydney Thank you. It was very sad, but she had pancreatic cancer which recurred early in March. She went quickly which was a blessing. Very little suffering. I miss her, but know she is watching over us. She lived long enough to meet her granddaughter which was what she hoped and prayed for.
