I'm a December '13 mom turned November mom when my LO arrived on 11/21. It's been amazing to stay home with her but I have to start work again in a few weeks (on Valentines day to be exact). I'm hoping I can start getting in the routine of things the week before since she'll be staying with a close friend of mine for the first month and then transitioning to daycare in March (on St. Patrick's day - we're all about the holidays!). I was wondering if you all had any recommendations for bottle prepping for daycare. I am nursing and giving bottles of pumped milk (just to get her used to them). Right now I prepare bottles throughout the day but figured someone out there must have some amazing system (washing pump parts, how much you freeze/refrigerate, how many bottles you rotate through, etc.).
Also - if you have any other general tips on how to reduce stress and prepare for this transition, I'm all ears. I'm pretty much dreading it as I've loved being home with my LO and know things will be so different. I am kind of excited to have conversations with adults though
Thanks for reading - pic of my little girl is below.
Have a great day!
