Travels Without Baby

I am about to embark on a business trip without my husband and without my baby. I’m excited about it because I haven’t attended a new media conference in a long time, and I’m going to BlogHer which I’ve wanted to attend for ages. The first year, I was pregnant with baby, the second year I had just given birth. So this is the year.

This is the first time I’m leaving baby for an extended period of time. This is way more than a day-long business trip. This is Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights away (coming back midnight on Sunday night). 3 nights of not waking up in the middle of the night because baby wants a bottle. Imagine that.

I also feel like a grown up again. I can travel solo. I can attend a conference. I can network. I can be like the me I was before having a baby – only 3 sizes larger and with less hair (post partum hair loss was very very bad to me).

I’m a little worried. Will baby be okay all day and night without me around? Or worse yet, will she not even notice I’m gone?

  2. That’s right… Reading your post, I’m realizing that traveling solo will turn into a rarity (luxury?) from a default for me, too!
