We've spent weeks researching and testing breast pumps and bottles in real homes with real families. Read our baby feeding bottle and breast pump reviews to find out which ones were awarded Mumsnet Best.

Tell me I'm being silly. I need to hear it.

DS is 7 months now and breastfed. He is on three massive meals and eats everything, but still is a boobie boy. Has milk every three hours or so during the day, and lots more when he's teething (as he is now.) He used to take bottles but hasn't for last month as his front teeth are swollen beyond recognition and are obviously painful. I'll get to the point: have to go out during day (8-6) for next three days and DH is having him. Have loads of EBM, but am betting he doesn't touch any of it. Am being v silly worrying about him, aren't I? He will survive no milk during the day for three days, right?
Also...DH has never done a full day before... sad

He will survive. He will probably hang off your boobs all night, but he will survive.

As will DH. And after the 3 days he will be as nice as pie to you for evermore, as he will realise that it is not a picnic.

Have a nice break, don't forget your breastpads, and take a breastpump with you incase you get a bit painfully engorged!!

try an open top cup/beaker rather than a bottle for the ebm.

As Smellen said wink

Yes he may want to just make up for it in the evening/night.

Thanks all..we have tried a cup and a beaker. Beaker just gets chewed to bits and cup is a whole new kind of game!! He loves drinking and then blowing milky raspberries but refuses to drink it. He will be fine, you're right.

yes, he will survive, and you may well find that for dh he will take the EBM from a cup or bottle.
hope it all goes ok
