Q&A: Nighttime Feedings While Away?
I have to go on a business trip. How can I make sure my baby will be OK taking her nighttime feedings while I'm away?
If your baby is taking a bottle at other times, this shouldn’t be an issue. What’s most important is that she feels comfortable with the person caring for her while you’re gone. If it’s your partner or someone she knows well, it should go just fine. If her caregiver is not someone she knows well, arrange for some get-to-know-you time with her caregiver so they have a chance to bond before you leave.
