Re: Am I crazy to even consider this?
No advice, but could you talk to the cruise ship folks about a freezer for your cabin? That way you could freeze the milk you pump and not have to dump it. I would sure hate to dump all that milk.
I have not been away from my baby at night yet and don't plan on it ever. I guess someday she will want to spend the night somewhere else and I may have to travel for work, but I'm trying to push that off until she is at least over 2.
I know other people who have left their babies and had a great time. However, I think you should consider the fact that this may cause her to wean. It might be very difficult to get her back to the breast after an entire week on bottles. Is there any way you can postpone the trip until after you wean?
