I, too, have nursed a child for 2.5 years and then went on to do combo-feeding with her younger sister from day one. I ended up weaning by 6 months and we exclusively formula fed from that point forward. I have zero regrets. It's what made me feel the happiest and most productive. I absolutely HATED that DD1 would only ever eat with me. She wouldn't take a bottle, so letting her dad feed her wasn't going to happen.

So I chose a different route with DD2 and I'm probably going to take that same combo-feeding route with baby #4 as well.
Thanks girl! It is nice to hear that being said the other way around and not just what they need! I literally drove myself mad with her. Like you said no one could help! It had to always be you and it was just exhausting!!

Do what you feel comfortable with. I personally couldn't leave my baby at that age so if I couldn't take them then I'd just say to my husband to go and enjoy the holiday. Everyone is different so you have to do what is right for you.
