Hi everyone, i need some advice. My baby girl is due in 2 weeks, and i plan to breastfeed her as long as possible. I am going back to school in jan, so i will be pumping so her father can feed her if i have to be gone when its time to feed. however i want to exclusivly breastfeed until then. my grandfather found out yesterday that he has cancer that cant be cured, just treated to keep him comfortable and what not and i'm worried about what to do for her feedings if he is to pass away before xmas and i have to leave her to go to the funeral. i didnt want to introduce bottles until after we are feeding really well because i dont want her to get confused, but if something doees happen i'm going to be forced to leave her with my sister-in-law and i guess im just worried that once she takes a bottle she wont want to nurse anymore.
any advice would be really helpful.
