Baby Deserves 24-Hour Room Service - My Family Travels

Nursing moms on-the-go can take advantage of hotel room service to keep babies happy.

Are you a nursing mother on the go, baby in tow?

Don’t forget – expressed breast milk retains nutrients for only 24 hours. If you won’t be using it immediately, fill individual zip-loc bags or bottles with 1½ portion servings, then date and freeze it (good for up to 60 days.)

If you’re flying, wrap milk packets in ice and ask the flight attendant to store them in the galley fridge. Once you’re at your hotel, have the concierge send your precious parcel to the kitchen’s deep freezer.

If you’re out when baby’s hungry, the caregiver can call Room Service to order a gently warmed milk pack delivered to your room, usually at no charge!

  • In my experience, babies usually like the sound and smell of someone they miss, and may stop crying.

    maybe your partner can make a tape/phone message of their voice, and leave behind some clothes, like pajamas, that they might feed the baby in. Having that to offer the baby might comfort her.

    Another option is giving baby something warm and moving, like the feeling of being rocked in someone's arms. our son loved being wrapped in a blanket and held on top of the clothes dryer (turned on low), which moved a bit, made some sounds, and seemed to help him stop crying.

    Otherwise, just wait. It is sure to pass.

    Hi, by baby is nearly 4 weeks old and i have started back at work but on nights, i have been getting txt's and phone calls off my partner all night saying that our baby has non stop crying since i left for work today. We think it is down to that he knows that i am not there and is crying out for me. Could anyone be able to give me some advise on how my partner could settle him pleas.
    thank you Daddy I
