My dd is almost 4 weeks old now and she is bf'ing very well, this is my 3rd child. I didn't bf very long with my other 2 due to being young and having lack of knowledge about br___tfeeding. My boyfriend and I are getting married in the beginning of Nov. and dd will only be 10 weeks old when we leave for a 6 day honeymoon. I'm really torn over leaving her so young but he and I have been together 9 years and I feel like this is a now or never kinda thing lol. I know she will be left in good hands with my MIL, but I'm worried she won't take to the br___t again after I come back, does anyone know if I can still successfully begin br___tfeeding again after being away that long? I will be pumping every 4-5 hours or so while we're gone to keep up supply as well (how romantic!) lol.

Also, she will be drinking formula for these days because I just don't have the supply of b___stmilk to leave her for 6 days.

your doing everything you can. Pump while your gone to keep your supply up. Make sure you use a b___st friendly nipple on the bottle, not those little skinny ones. Might make it easier for her to go back to the b___st. And dont give up right away if she doesn't take the b___st. Offer it to her before the bottle. and stop the botton during and offer the b___st. And if it doesn't work out, remember you can always pump and give her the milk out of the bottle. Dont give up. Good luck

Thankyou for the encouragement, I'm definitley going to try to keep bf'ing as long as possible, but I know I've given her a good start even if she doesn't take the b___st after I come back too.
