Re: Wedding & Nursing Baby
This sort of thing is definitely a challenge for nursing moms! People just don't realize that having children sometimes means you can't go where you want, when you want. The kids' needs come first. I've missed a couple of weddings and other celebrations because I am not leaving my kids with a sitter, particularly at bedtime. The way I look at it is, if someone really wants the pleasure of my company, then they have to accept that at this point I am "plus 2". Children, that is.
The bride and groom have a 1 year-old. Hopefully that means they are a little more tuned in to children and their needs than a childless couple, and will be understanding if you cannot attend all or part of their big day. As for the "tough love" folks who are cornering you, I would simply smile and say "It's not up for discussion. If I want your opinion, I will ask for it. Thanks!". If they press further, I would ask them why they care. It's not their wedding.
Coolest thing my big girl said recently: "How can you tell the world is moving when you are standing on it?"
Coolest thing my little girl sang recently: "I love dat one-two pupples!"
