Re: Vacation supply
Last weekend, my sister got married and I was the matron of honor. I was really really really worried about feeding my DS too (also 12 wks old). I'm okay with NIP, but the logistics of it were killing me (I'd be unavailable for some of the day and I'd be in a dress that wasn't BFing-friendly). I had myself so stressed out...
...and then when the weekend actually came, everything worked out wonderfully! With all of the people and excitement, DS didn't eat as frequently as usual because he was happy being entertained by everyone. I only had to feed him right before the wedding and then half-way through the reception. I had bottles just in case he needed to eat when I was away from him getting pictures taken - but he wasn't interested.
I just wanted to share, because hopefully something similar will happen to you. Obviously your son is going to eat, but maybe it won't be as bad as you are expecting! Good luck and have fun!
