My child is 3 months old now and I'm exclusively breastfeeding. I have a wedding that I have to attend to and I plan not to bring her. However, i feel uneasy leaving her that long even though I'm planning to store milk. Any tips that would make me more assured that she'll be ok? This will be the first time that I'll be leaving her that long.

Leave more than enough milk plus your baby's comfort items (favorite toy or blanket, music, etc). Tell your caretaker (yaya, grandparent, etc) to send you updates every 30 minutes. But more than anything, after all your preps, make sure to enjoy the event and tell yourself that you need that break. Being a relaxed, healthy, happy person makes you a better mom!

Start spending some time without your baby months before the event proper so that the baby will get use to being without you.
