It was a struggle leaving the hospital with my baby because I was told to supplement her with formula and/or breast milk (a bottle was introduced right from the beginning). Now she is four weeks and this week was the first week we did not use any bottles for her. I am so proud of her progress, but now I am going back to work next week. Not only that, but I am having to go out of town for work the day after she turns five weeks old. I will be gone for four days. I will be able to breast-feed her the day that I leave and breast-feed her the day that I come back so I guess it will be two full days where she is not breast-fed and two half days where she is breast-fed and using a bottle. Is it possible to continue breast-feeding her when I come back? I am hurting at the thought of her not being able to latch on after I come back from my trip. Any thoughts?
