@sosewmama:  You can still nurse with a corset style dress just know that you will need assistance getting the dress off and it will take longer so I recommend getting ready to breastfeed before your baby starts crying.

I would recommend Breastfeed just before you get the dress on and then having your husband helping with the other times.

Also I know you’re anti bottle but is that because of formula? Can you not just rent a Breast Pump for 1 day and keep yourself from getting engorged that way and it would be quicker and your baby would still get the nutrients from you.

If its just anti bottle period then yeah go with the first half of this post 🙂

 

Oh and make sure you have nursing pads inside your dress, you don’t want to leak into a white dress just in case you have that issue.

I am a breastfeeding mom too. My little one is currently 15 months old. The wedding is next may so he will be over 2 but I don’t know if we will have weaned by then. Luckily he will probably only need to nurse for his nap and bed time. I have never used bottles with him either. 

i would recommend nursing right before you put the dress on, and then after the ceremony and pictures right before the reception and again after dinner/cake and hopefully that will hold her over until bedtime. since she will be 10 months old you could also try a little bit of solids in between to help her go longer, although my little one comfort nurses and sometimes solids just doesn’t cut it when he wants his boobie. 

As far as pads, once my milk supply leveled out around 9months pp I didn’t need to use pads any more so maybe that will be the case for you!

I didn’t start Liam on solids until he was 8 or 9 months old, you still have time but dont feel like you have to rush it. 🙂 he also started with a cup around 9 months old, just casual usage but in a pinch he’d drink out of it if I wasn’t able to nurse him right that minute.
