Re: I don't want to wean my dd,my husband wants a weekend away! Advice please!
Yes, I've left my nurslings for more than a weekend and they still nursed upon my return. The first time, my baby was 11 months old and my toddler was 2.5 years old (tandem nursing.) My baby was not on any solids, either. I began pumping a month in advance to have plenty of milk for him. The biggest help to me was that my dh was with the kids. I knew I didn't have to worry. Anyway, I was gone for 3 days, 2 nights.
The second time was just a few months later (the boys were 14 months and a few months shy of 3 years old) and I was gone for 4 days, 3 nights and they did fine. This time, there was no stockpile of milk (not that my older son would have taken it, anyway) but they had no problem going back to my breast once I returned.
A real woman always has a clean house, an empty laundry basket, smells good, is well made-up, slim, healthy, eloquent, and perfectly well behaved...I suspect I am a man.
