I am leaving my baby for the first time in a couple weeks. She will be 7 months old. I will be gone for 4 days/3 nights. I have plenty of frozen milk stored to cover while I am gone. I plan to pump and bring the milk home in a cooler on the plane.
DH will be keeping DD (and her big sisters) while I am gone. I am most worried about night time because DD likes to nurse ALL.NIGHT.LONG. DH will be using frozen milk and I obviously don't want to waste much if possible. I have no idea how much she is actually eating at night to tell him how much to put in a bottle. I know bottles should only be used within a couple hours if not finished initially. What would be the easiest method for him for making and feeding bottles throughout the night? I was thinking of making two 2 oz bottles and keeping them in a cooler with ice pack upstairs, then having a couple extra bags of frozen milk in the cooler too to add more if needed. We do not have a bottle warmer, heating the bags is quicker than trying to eat a bottle with milk in it. I don't want her screaming for 10+ minutes because she is hungry, waking her sisters.
Has anyone left EFB baby with DH yet? how did they work night time bottles?
