I am going to be going out of town for 3 days and 2 nights. I am concerned about going that long without nursing my daughter. She is 3 months and she does well with a bottle, I have already stocked up on milk, but my concern is when I come back will she go back to nursing normally? I plan on pumping while I am away to maintain my milk supply, so I am not worried about that, just her being able to re-latch when I return.

I had to go away when my daughter was 6 months old and she took it right back up when I returned! I returned to work when she was about 3 1/2 months and never had a problem going back and forth between breast and bottle, although my hubby says she plays with the bottle and takes longer to eat. Your time away will be more traumatic for you then your little one!
