There is no right or wrong here dear.; It's a choice you have made and I think it's empowering. Your mom is there so why worry.. think of all those who need to run to day careS and hire people.; You are lucky. And yes since you have part time duties, it is better still.; Make sure you have all the right things needed for the LO handy for your mom. Have you planned to express and store milk for these five hours?; Or depending on formula?
More so, in a month more, your daughter will be weaning too.. that will easy you more..

I will feed her and go and when she wakes up in the morning mother would give her formula milk or should I store my milk?? Because I didn't planned anything regarding store of milk
Thanks dear; for your advice :-)

If you think you have good supply, I'd say, pump out and store. At room temp BM stays good till 4 hours. For longer, refrigerate it. Use a manual breast pump maybe or an electric one if the budget suits you. Have you introduced bottle?

priyanka yadav

I have introduced bottle to her but she don't have milk by that for some time she sucks the milk then she leaves the bottle

Satarupa B Kaur

go in for a bottle tats cute looking and try grabbing attention.; If at all it fails, ask your mom to use katori spoon.

priyanka yadav

Yup that's the best option i feel bowl and spoon let's see how the days go on accordingly she will also adjust

Priya

Priyanka do not worry. Babies adjust very quickly. You are very lucky you have a part time option. 5 hours away will also help you take a break. Happy that your mom will take care .
