    Default 3 hours away from baby

    How is the best way to handle 3 hours away from baby? Is every baby different on this? Does she need a bottle of 3-5 oz, or can she wait for this weekly class I'm gone for? If she does need the bottle, will my body adjust? I'm gone for different hours 3 or 4 days a week. Thank you!

    How old is your baby? Does she regularly go that long when you're around? If not, what is the longest usual length she goes during the day? How is she with solids?

    There's a good chance you can just make sure to nurse right before and right after. If you do end up needing to give a bottle, yes, your body will adjust fine (though you'll want to pump to replace).
