Reply to First overnight

My son is 20 months old now and he hasn't been without me either. However I find that he's more independent than I thought. This past Easter, we stayed with my in-laws. Every night of that weekend my MIL would put him to bed without fail while I showered. Usually breastfeeding is a part of the sleep routine, but he didn't seem to miss it. I'm sure your MIL can follow a similar routine. Instead of breastfeeding, she can provide a bottle or sippy cup (pumped breastmilk, regular milk, water, etc). Afterwards she continues the rest of trying to get him to sleep. I'm sure things will go well. Enjoy some good fun! :)
