Breastfeeding is another instance where brining your family is
important.  8 days is just too long to be away from a baby
breastfeeding.  It's a lot of milk to pump and send back or have
stocked up in advance.  There are some instances where having a
support person and child are essential to some attendees being able to
participate.  I've said this already and Ted made this argument
already.  There may be other situations, I don't know as I haven't run
into them yet.
