Recently I dropped the mid-afternoon BF and have started expressing and freezing it as I am going to have to go away with work soon. My DTs are ill at the moment with nasty colds and I was wondering whether it would be a good idea to re-introduce it for a few days to give them an added injection of immunity. Do you think it will confuse them? They didn't seem to mind missing it to begin with so I'm hoping that they might let go of it again as easily....

depends why you dropped the feed and whether you wold be willing to re-start it again? they might get confused or at least one of them might. personally i couldnt carry on bfeding past 13 months as i had just HAD ENOUGH so wouldnt have re-introduced just coz of a cold. but we are each different. am v sure it WILL help with immunity but you are still giving them feeds anyway so i really wouldnt worry. bear in mind the confusion to your poor norks too though!! esp if you are going away with work soon.
