We left DS only once overnight and I didn't like it but I was really sick with the flu and we were moving. When we have DH's parents watch him it's usually for no more then 4 hours or once all our errands are done.
so far, just one overnight...DS is 15 months and I wouldnt want to ask anyone to do more than that cause he is a busy guy! I think my mom started taking him overnight when he was about 6-7 months . That will change when my second is born...he might have to stay away 2-4 nights depending on how my delivery goes.
DD1 is 17 months, we have gone out 3 times couple hours each time, she was with my mom. When DD2 was born my mom stayed with her the 2 nights DH and I were in the hospital.
DD2 is 7 weeks and I have even left her with DH.
Quoting First Time Momma(::" When his father picks him up I only let him go for about 2-3 hours. Everyone keeps saying "quit bfing so he can stay the night here" but I don't want to quit just to have one night alone :/"
thats crap. they need to mtob....unless they meant pump and offer bm in a bottle?
