Breastfeeding advice for attending a wedding – My cousin is getting married next year in April and we just received the “Save the Date” cards. It was addressed to just my husband and I so I checked with the bride to be about whether kids were invited. They aren’t… and I’m totally fine with this for my two and a half year old – she will stay with friends. But just to clarify with her, I reminded her that I would have a two month old baby (who I intend to breast feed) by this time and was told that this child wouldn’t be able to come either. The wedding will be two hours from home, so even if I was considering leaving the baby for a few hours at a time with friends and returning to feed as needed, this is not an option since I will not be close by. I was told later by my aunt that she as the mother of the groom is mortified and spoke to the bride to be about it and was told that it is our choice not to attend the wedding…. How would other people handle it? Would you just let it go and suck it up? Write a letter to the cousin explaining the physical impossibility and disappointment at not being able to share the day with them? Hire a baby sitter for 12 hours and a close motel room that I can go to for feeding? (the thought of that TERRIFIES me! – where do you even look to hire somebody for that?
