I am 17 and have an 11 month old baby. I am going back to school next month. She was pretty much exclusively breastfed for the first 10 months of her life and has only just started properly eating solids, she still won't take a bottle or a sippy cup. She's very, very attached to me.
Anyway, I just found out that there is a camp in the first week back. It's for 3 nights and based 3 hours from my house. This camp is accounts for a huge percentage of your final grade for the year. I can't go but I can't skip it either. What the heck do I do? I was concerned enough about leaving my baby for 6 hours during the day but DAY and NIGHT for 4 days, 3 nights is just insane. My daughter sleeps with me every night, nurses all the time and she hates bottles, no matter who gives them to her. My boyfriend has work so the last thing I want is for him to be up all night with a screaming baby and then have to go to work the next day.
Your probably thinking it's a no brainer, I am going to have to stay behind with my baby but seriously, not going will completely ruin the whole year for me, I may not even be able to pass. I need to come up with some sort of solution here and need suggestions!!
