Re: Going back to school after less than a week?
That is exactly what I did early on. Even though it is very possible to safely bed share with a newborn, I wasn't very comfortable with it when my son was so very tiny. You do get a little more sleep and snuggles when you bed share, but having the bassinet right next to the bed worked well for us in the early days. You can also consider pushing the bed against the wall so that your baby is between you and the wall and your partner is on the other side of you in the event that you find yourself needing a little extra sleep.

I am going to talk to my instructors and do all I can to prepare for unexpected emergencies.
I would ask if there is a space where you can pump. You can pump in your car if there isn't, but I think it will be easier if there is a space close you your classrooms.
Is there anthing else I need to consider, or anything else I should discuss with my instructors?
