Would you?


Through my husband's work he will be winning a trip to Mexico for being in the top 40 of the company. Its the 23rd of Oct to the 26th. We will have a barley 1 month old and not to mention 2 other "babies" ages 2 and 4 that are very needy of us and won't leave our sides. I am sooooooo torn on if I should go or not. Husband and I haven't been on a DATE in over 4 years. We had plans on going to concerts and dinners, but even cancelled those cause they were too late in the night. This is a once in a life time thing for us, we could never afford something like this other wise and i feel like being a little selfish=/ the baby will still just want to eat and sleep so I dont think I am too worried about him, but I'm so torn on the other 2. Help!!

Absolutely do it especially since the odds of another trip like this for your family are very slim.

Will you be nursing your youngest, though? If so, do you plan on being attached to a pump the entire time?

No need to feel guilty about choosing to bottle feed! I was just wondering the logistics of a 4 day trip if you were nursing, but since you aren't (and again, no shame in that!) then absolutely go on this trip. I know I would

Thank you! I feel like i am giving this one the raw end of the deal...he was a huge surprise (using protection) and my body just can't and doesn't want to do it anymore...=/ my first 2 were breast and bottle and then my daughter was 2 and 1/2 years nursing!! So not doing it at all with this one has me feeling guilty.

Do you think being away from a brand new baby is bad? He will mostly sleep, but goodness i feel sooo bad about even the thought.

Getting the raw end of the deal would mean forcing yourself to nurse even though you hate doing it and then dreading that very contact every time he needs to eat.

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.
