Cutting the Cord: Tips for Leaving Your Baby Overnight

Y’all, I remember what it was like to leave my little ones behind when they were young. Even if the kids were with their grandparents, I was always a mess. I was so worried something was going to happen if I wasn’t there. However, it took me a while to realize it was like ripping off a Band-Aid. After a while, I got comfortable with leaving my kids with a trusted caregiver. I promise you guys can, too. Here are some tips for leaving your baby overnight that’ll help make things easier.

Get the Right Equipment

Y’all, don’t make the same mistake I did. I was so worried about leaving my baby behind for the first night that I had none of the right equipment—my poor in-laws! Instead of leaving your caregiver high and dry, gather all the equipment you need before the big night. Start by getting a convertible crib that’s easy to move and use. Also, don’t forget the toys so that your youngster isn’t crying all night long.

Prepare Food

Whether you pump or not, you need to prepare food for your baby. The last thing you want is for your little one’s diet to become jumbled after a night away. Also, your baby may become cranky if the food they’re used to isn’t available. The goal is to keep things as routine as possible, y’all. This means preparing the food your baby usually eats ahead of time.

Don’t Panic

Again, try your best not to take a page out of my playbook, y’all. I was a wreck when I left my kids for the first time. Yet, the reality is this only made the situation worse. When my baby saw I was a mess, she became upset, and it was a vicious cycle. For this reason, another one of the tips for leaving your baby overnight is to stay as calm as possible. It’ll be better for everyone involved.
