  • I would just do it when the baby needed to.It would be way easier than lugging bottles around.

  • I always kept everything the same. I never kept them on a schedule I nursed on demand. I also never pumped or gave bottles.

  • i kept to the same schedule that i had when i was at home. i don't really see much of a difference. now if i didn't have the baby i would most definitely pump (because being engorged HURTS LIKE HECK!) but even if we were like.. out to an amusement park or something I'd go to a secluded area to breastfeed. the bathroom if i really had to lol but most definitely not my first choice

  • I nursed on demand, but I pump for work, so I would always have an extra bottle handy in case it was inconvenient for me to nurse. For example, if we're in the car, I don't want to ask DH to pull over and prolong the drive, so I'll feed the baby a bottle in the car.

  • I pump and breastfeed on demand... so when I want time to my self, just whenever, I dont have to resort to

  • I nurse on demand wherever I am. When flying, though, I do try to time it so that I nurse as we are taking off and descending/landing to help with popping her ears.

  • I've been away with both of my kids in different stages of nursing. I've always just continued on as usual, nursing on demand when needed.

  • On demand, always. No matter where.
