My wife is breastfeeding our 6-week-old baby. She has to make a trip overseas for 24 hours and cannot bring the baby due to passport issues.
The baby is used to drinking expressed milk from a bottle with no issues and also the occasional formula bottle, but is primarily fed from the breast. She will continue to extract milk to keep up production whilst on the trip.
Can the baby be off the breast for 24 hours and resume being breast fed afterwards? Our concern is that the baby will "forget" how to drink directly from the breast.
