My husband just left work to go to the hospital.... I want to be there with him and he want me to come so I tried to pump and only got 1.5 oz.... What would happen if I bought formula for just incase? I don't really want it in the house but I feel like I have no other opinion right now

If you are going to a germy hospital you will bring germs home anyways, but I wouldnt worry about it. Babies are born in the hospital, just wash your hands a whole lot while you are there. I wouldnt do formula unless absolutley nessesary, and by that I mean you have explored every other option first.

How far away is the hospital? If its a reasonable distance from a trusted sitter (within 30-45 min) I would go to the hospit, leave what you can and come home every 3 hrs to nurse.

Don't do it. Just take baby with you.

1.5 ounces will be enough for an hour and a half, probably not enough. If you buy formula your biggest risk is that baby won't take it. If that happens, baby needs to be brought to you. Your second biggest risk is that baby will upchuck it all. If that happens, baby will need to be brought to you.

Expect baby will wind up there with you at some point if your husband is seriously ill. Go... bring your pump. I hope he's OK.
