    Default Adjusting feeding sch. when going out?

    If you need to to be somewhere with your LO and that time coincides with a feeding (while you're traveling) how do you do it? Do you feed before leaving your house, even if the last feeding was 2 hours ago or do you just wait until you arrive to your destination?

    I just pay attention to my baby. If he starts crying, I would stop and offer to nurse him. If he was happy, then I wouldn't worry about it. We have never been on any kind of a schedule other than the one my lo chose for the day.

    I agree. I would watch my baby, not the clock. If he seems hungry, feed him. If not, keep going. I've nursed my baby before leaving to go out somewhere even when he wasn't showing signs of being hungry, just because I wasn't sure if I could find a good place to nurse him...no harm there.
    All over the world there exists in every society a small group of women who feel themselves strongly attracted to giving care to other women during pregnancy and childbirth. Failure to make use of this group of highly motivated people is regrettable and a sin against the principle of subsidiary. ~ Dr. Kloosterman, Chief of OB/GYN, Univ. of Amsterdam, Holland
