That was unnecessary

Last week was a tough week for me.

One of my girl friends decided she wanted to do a girl's trip for her birthday and I felt very honored to be invited along. While I really wanted to go, I really didn't know if I should.

You see, in the five and a half months since I've had baby, the longest I've been away from her is 3 hours. And little miss is exclusively breastfed and wants to eat every three house no. matter. what.
Being that I do feed her every three hours, it was really hard to build up a milk supply pumping because I wasn't missing any feedings and yet still trying to pump more on top of that.
So maybe we could mix milk with a little formula? But what if she didn't like the taste? What if it hurt her tummy? 
Plus, I didn't know if she'd be okay with having to take the bottle for an entire weekend. What if she hated it?
And then you hear that sometimes babies end up preferring a bottle because it flows faster, and then what if she like the bottle better and didn't want to breastfeed?

Basically, what I'm saying is I had a million 'what ifs' running through my mind.

I swear I picked up the phone about 20 times to say that I just wasn't going to be able to go.

But I sucked it up, hoped for the best, and went.

I had a lot of fun with 4 other girls, and we spent the weekend shopping, eating, drinking and dancing. It was fun to have adult time, a break from the kids, and a change of scenery. I'm really glad I went.

And of course, all my worries were in vain. Isabelle had enough milk (with a bit of formula mixed in) to last her the weekend. She did fine with the bottle. There was no apparent tummy issues. And she has welcomed back her usual method of getting milk :)

Anyway, that's why my blogging has fallen behind. But I'm back in full force now!
