    My two 'bators are on day six, and I just found out that the one running at the universitys early childhood center will have a 24 hour power outage this weekend. I'm inclined to just drive it home on Friday resting on a pillow and bring it back in Monday or should I just leave it?

    suggestions?

    If it was me I would bring it home. 24 hours is a long time.

    Yes bring it home. My husband had to turn our power off about a week ago and it was only for about half an hour. The temp dropped so quickly in my bator - I was shocked. When he turned off a second time I wrapped it in a blanket first and that was better but 24 hours is a long time.
