topic2 Going out leaving bubs for first time...............

Post by clairelana on Thu Aug 28, 2008 8:23 am

Hi i posted in a previous thread about this yesterday. Sorry to repeat myself!
Sad
My hubby has got us concert tickets for tonight. This will be first time i have left Kaydi for more than an hour or so. I'm so worried, I don't know why as i have Lana too and my mum looked after her when she was younger. I wasn't breastfeeding her then though.

I have expressed some milk enough for about 4 feeds. She has one bottle of formula every now and then too so i know she can have that if my mum runs out of ebm. I'm so worried that after having so many bottles at once she wont want to breastfeed anymore.

Kaydi feeds every hour its a pain i have tried all sorts to try to make her go longer but she has persistent thrush (that doesn't seem to want to go). I think it hurts when she feeds so she only takes a bit then has to wait till she can feed again.

I'm worried, i know its daft but i can't help it. She cluster feeds in the evenings well i say that, but she does use me as a dummy for a lot of this time. She wont take a dummy, believe me i have tried.....lol I think she might just cry for my mum.

My mum also wants her to stay the night! I don't know how she's going to get her to sleep as she usually falls asleep on the breast.

I am going to ask if she will have them here so i can feed her when i get home. I don't think my mum will understand though. Mum usually goes to bed quite early so i think thats why she has suggested they stay at hers. I think Kaydi will have trouble getting to sleep.
I can't not go as my hubby needs me to take him and he's been waiting for this concert for about 4 years.

:help: What do i do? Is this going to cause problems with our feeding? Should i take something to express into? I'm going to be bursting!

I'm not looking forward to this at all. I should be i really need to get out!

go with your instincts, and just remember they are your kids and ultimately its your decision where they stay.
i remember feeling exactly the same when aeryn was little and at the last minute i cancelled (id been waiting to see the band for years!) but feeling similar when willow was small but i took things slowly and got ready telling myself that if i didnt want to go that i wouldnt, i went only stayed a couple of hours (was daves b'day!) but at least we got out!
i think you should ask your mum to stay at yours though youre obviously not ready to have them stay away and to be honest i dont blame you! hope my rambling helps and you get things sorted!

I can't believe i did it. I let my mum take them over night. I was so worried but they are here and fine now. Mum said Kaydi screamed with wind after her bottles. Bless her. She's ok now though.


We had a really good night, some much deserved time together. I had to go to toilet and get rid of some of my milk i was getting sore. Its such a shame to waste it though. I also got 7oz out in 10 mins when i got home.
All is well and i worried for no reason.
Thanx Ang for the reply i did almost ask my mum to stay here but hubby said i should get a good nights sleep while i could.

Yeah i actually had a good nights sleep! shocking....lol
Once i had got over the initial decision (to let Kaydi stay over) I was fine. Well when i knew she would be asleep, i was fine.

Its really weird when i was at the concert i said to hubby Kaydi is screaming. My mum told me she screamed with wind, it was around the same time. Intuition hey!.....lol

Ah well, here's to many more nights out....ha ha.

Thanx girls
