My wife has to head away (overseas) on a work trip when our newborn will be approx 10wks old, and be gone about 2 weeks. It is an important trip for her work but she is worried about it how it may affect the baby.
The things we are worried about:
- Baby is presently fed from breast and bottle (not enough milk), would like to continue this when she returns so she will take a breast pump with her to "pump and dump" to continue milk stimulation - we hope baby will latch on still when she returns?
- Will baby stress about not having mum around (I - Dad - will take time off work and look after baby 247).
