Next week (oct 3) I go back to work. We've hired an in home nanny for Childcare. My husband works from home so she'll have someone familiar around. I will be working on transition with the Nanny in my home for 3 full days Fri/mon/tues prior to my return to work. In that time we'll want to have her try giving bottles of my pumped milk. We will be reviewing paced bottle feeding. My question is whether I should leave the room/house when she does. Part of me needs to see how it goes but I also don't want to be there and stress about the fact that my baby is right there and I'm not nursing her. Nor do i want her to sense my presence, right? Or is it better if she does? When my husband did bottle tests I left all times but the last time. I hid upstairs and could hear my DD crying the whole time, but we had been having a rough couple of days w/her anyway and were testing a new bottle that wasn't well received.
I could also use the Wifi cam and log in remotely to observe, but its going to stress me out if it goes any way but perfectly.
