Hi ladies, my husband wants to take me on a 3 day outing for my birthday. I would not have access to my baby during these 3 days. This outing will be in May and my daughter will be 16 months at that point. I'm hoping to be nursing her as often as I do now, but am unsure how that will look with a toddler this age. This might sound stupid, but would the caregiver continue to give her my milk in a bottle while I'm gone or would she just wait until I come back from my trip?
Obviously, I would bring my pump with me on the trip,but how could this affect babe when I come back? Would this 3 day absence from me encourage her to self wean? My hope is to continue to nurse her until she's two if I can, so my husband told me I can think about it and make my decision if I want to take the trip this May or next May when I will be finished nursing her.
