If you have concerns about your partner's emotional and mental well-being during pregnancy or after delivery:
When your baby is more than six weeks old, your partner may prefer to spend time away from the baby. She may want time to exercise or personal time to do something for herself.
If breastfeeding is well established, you can feed your baby a bottle. If your baby is formula feeding, you can take care of any number of feedings.
