Re: Transitioning to Nanny
Can DH observe her feedings? We're in pretty much the same situation (DH works from home) and since he did the bottle-feedings before I went back to work, he worked through any problems with our nanny. I just talked to her about frequency, amount, etc. If you don't want to go that route, I think it would be okay for the nanny to start the feeding, and you can quietly check in midway through or something. In fact, I was the one overfeeding DD (based on her occasional bottles), and my nanny was afraid to speak up about it (she had worked at a daycare previously) until I said we needed to cut back. So it's good if you can work together to make things work smoothly from the beginning. We love our situation -- we feel very lucky.
