So before my husband and I conceived I took a job that will require me to be in a different part of the country for a week in July. Its a big annual conference and I have been hired to lead workshops every evening for 5 days. It is hard to say how old the our little one will be, but I figure he could be as old as 5 weeks by then or as little as 3 weeks. My husband will be able to be with me for the first half of the week and my mother will be at the conference for the second half of the week.
So, what should I get/bring with me? It will probably be hot and I will be walking around the campus during the day. We are going to try and get a room with air-conditioning so all of us don't swelter at night. I will be able to have the baby with me during the workshops although I think I will try to just have him in my arms when I need to nurse him (my husband or mom can sit in on the workshops and hold the baby).
We have an Ergo Baby carrier with the infant insert and we could bring the stroller, too, if we needed to.
Also, any suggestions in general about working/traveling that soon after the birth? We can drive (it is a long-ish drive, perhaps 6 hours) so we don't need to worry about flying.
Thanks so much for your help!!
