Giving the mother personal time

Occasionally, mother might need to go somewhere without the baby, whether for an appointment or if she feels she needs a break. Sometimes, a mother might just like to take a long relaxing bath without having to worry about baby, or go out shopping alone or with a friend for a couple hours. She can nurse baby just before leaving and be back for the next feeding. In case of an emergency or delayed return, she can leave some of her expressed milk in the freezer. As long as baby has been fed before mother leaves, he is usually happy and contented with father.
