I'm a full time work from home momma but I have an upcoming engagement for work that I have to travel for. My newest DS will only be 3 months old and is still exclusively breastfed. I have the option of taking him and my nanny with me on the business trip and having a previous nanny watch my 3 year old DS while I'm away, however the costs that go with that get pretty high.
I have several questions for other working mamma's out there:
1. When did you first leave your children and how did the daddies/partner handle it? My newborn is a GREAT sleeper (thank god) and only wakes once around 3am to eat every night, but my husband has never even tried to give him a bottle and he is a little concerned about how he will handle both boys while I'm away.
2. How would you handle bringing the nanny with you? Would you pay for a separate room for the nanny or have them share a room with you?
The trip is only two nights/days and I have plenty of milk stored up, but I'm having mild panic attacks about the thought of leaving my newborn so early. He is such a good, mild baby who loves his daddy and big brother almost more then he loves momma so I'm sure he will be fine. However DH is pretty nervous and I just don't know which route to take.
