Quoting Love Wedge +2:" I`ve heard that as well, but mostly in the States, and I live in Ontario lol. BF and preemie factor ... [snip!] ... the NICU nurses). He has trouble being away from me for a few hours. I don`t know what an entire weekend would do to him :("


In all honesty.. your ex would probably scrape through one night and drive him straight back, lmao.
We left DD with my mom for one night for my birthday when DD was 18m and despite knowing my mom well it was really rough and she woke up crying a lot.



And more recently, just before her 2nd birthday we went to Paris for 2 nights and she was pretty much fine, so you can see how much difference 6 months can make.

With the distance he would have him a whole weekend, not just one night, unfortunately.



My 6 year old has trouble sleeping away from home, even when I`m with her.

Oh I know, I meant that he wouldn't be able to hack a second night!

Not to be nosey lol, but was there a reason why you started mixed feeding at 7 months? My DD is 7 months and has been breastfed (no bottles) until now. But I started working again last week and now she has about 4-5 bottles of formula a week because I don't even get 1/2 ounce when I pump.

No I don't nurse from both sides, when she was an ewbrsheefused my left side, no matter what I did or tried she would not nurse from
he right (my n****e is shaped a little bit different) so that side dried up when she was about 2 months old.



I only have a hand pump, which is kinda sucks too. Oh and I don't feel my let down at all.

Yup! My DH was great. I'd plop down on the couch and he'd bring me whatever I needed. :)
