@roxy821:  my guess is you would have to feed her in public or in your car or whatever..just not while you are actually exercising.

@roxy821:  You can “top her off” before your hike and then again after your hike, even if she doesn’t take a full feeding.  Also, by 6 weeks, she’ll probably be a little more efficient at eating and go a little bit longer between feedings.  Um, and I’ve had to stop on trails before to give a bottle.  You just come prepared, just in case.

ETA:  I’m sure in the baby bootcamp some mothers have to stop to feed their babies.  No big deal!

On a trail, just carry her in a moby wrap or the like, and you can nurse her while walking…no big deal. As for more organized work outs, I’m sure it’ll be no big deal to stop and feed. I’m guessing most infants sleep through the exercises anyway.

I would often leave the house early and feed my baby once I got there, either in my car or in a private spot inside the facility. That way I was able to complete the classes without having to stop to feed my son.

Also, babies are not all the same. Some babies eat more frequently than others, and even for each child the amount of time between feedings can vary. As they get older they also go for longer periods of time between feedings.

I walk 4 – 5 miles each morning.  I started this when my Dirty Delete was 4 months old.  BF I stopped BFing, I brought a bottle of Bridesmaid or Best Man on ice with me and now I bring formula and water that I mix when she gets hungry.  I didn’t have the strength before 4 months.  I also have a really nice stroller that is very comfortable for my daughter. She ususally falls asleep or is just really interested in seeing the sights.
