Poll

Question: DH wants to take me away for a weekend away next weekend. How would you feed an EBF baby who hasn't ever had formula?

Options:

Pump pump pump and give baby practice bottles. (I really don't respond to the pumo though so it might still not be enough)

Pump as much as I can but introduce a bottle of formula to see how she does)

Skip the weekend. Wait til baby is bigger

other please tell me what it would be because I don't see it

I would let her have a bottle of formula to see how she takes it just incase you don't leave enough milk and if she doesn't do well with the formula postpone the trip until later.

Personally I would wait until baby is older.

I think that she will be ok-just introduce a bottle before you leave. She won't starve, trust me.

OK, then I change my response. Pump as much as you can, has baby had food yet?

Have you done a bottle at all?If you haven't; start now. Some kids take awhile to accept a bottle. When I had to be gone for more than 2 days I pumped as much as I could and gave half formula half breastmilk. She never took to only having formula
