Re: 20 months...4-5 day separation, what to do?
Thanks! I guess I'd be okay for him to nurse again. I'll see how he does. My feeling is he'll want to nurse. I will try and hand express. Hopefully I'll still have something left for him if he wants it. He's perfectly fine with another caregiver for long periods and not needing to nurse. He'll use a pacifier some, too, just not if I'm around! I've never left him more than 8 or hours during the day, and there haven't been too many of those either. I would not have planned a 4 day trip without him weaning first, but we need to find housing and it would just be better if we didn't have him with us.
