My first child nursed and slept in her crib on schedule (she set it) for 26 months during which I traveled for nights away at a time every few months. Yea breastpump.
My second child, currently 13 months, co-sleeps, nurses on demand, and does not consistently fall asleep on his own. I have managed to not spend any nights away from him since birth (just a happy coincidence) but must travel for 3 nights without him in a couple of weeks. I don't plan to have any pumped milk stored up for him (he has no interest in a bottle) and I plan to pump to keep up my supply while away.
Any advice on setting him and everyone else up for success regarding no mom, no boob, no milk, and no co-sleeping/sleeping in crib? (my husband doesn't feel confident he won't roll on top of him at night.)
