My husband and I are about to go away for 6 nights on business and our 2 1/2 year
old son will be staying with his aunt and uncle.
Here's the catch... I am still nursing our son. He goes to sleep while nursing and just to make it even more complicated, we are also co-sleepers.
We did an overnight, trial run recently and surprise! our son and his aunt did not get much sleep. He had a very difficult time getting to sleep, then woke up in the middle of the night looking for mommy and the nummies and then could not get back to sleep for hours. .
He has never really taken a bottle and I don't know that pumping is the answer either, because it's, for the most part, about habit and comfort for us now. I do not know how to make this time away easier for all involved.
Any thoughts? I could really use the advice!
