    How old was your baby

    Advertisements
    When you left them with a sitter?

    My birthday is next week, and I would love nothing more than to have a nice romantic dinner with DH. But DD is barely 2 months old, and I feel guilty for wanting to drop her off at a sitters. I go back and forth. I have friends I completely trust. And I have had no problem pumping and she takes a bottle wonderfully. I know she'll be fine.

    How old where they and how long did you leave them?

    DD stayed with MIL when she was 3 weeks old. (but that was crap but only because MIL sucked).

    after that she was about 2 months or so when our good friend watched her. I was pleased with that one.

    Not till 6 months with dyl but with rylee will be about a month when my mom gets here.

    Just remember your marriage still needs the attention and it's always going to be tough to leave the baby.
    ❤️❤️❤️
    Follow Rylee's progress

    ODS was probably only a couple weeks. I trust my old neighbors completely though & DH was getting ready to deploy. YDS was more like 2 months and I actually left him with someone I met through here & who now claims he is her boyfriend

    Left DD because I wanted me time/couple time where I could get someone I trusted to watcher her for a few hours?.....


    DD was about a 1.5years old the first time I had real "me time" away from her before that my babysitter(my aunt) was watching her starting at 5weeks old from normally about 5am-10pm on week days because I'd go straight from school to work. Never had anyone I trusted enough or the time before that also didn't have a marriage to hold together.

    Next one will likely be fairly young when DH and I go out for a date night.
    Signature removed due to size.

    ODD was about 5 weeks old, and that's how we got YDD. And that's also when we got engaged.

    Wyatt went to SeaWorld with Gramma/Grampa while we spent the AM at Aquatica waterpark when he was almost three months. He had a real sitter every Monday for the past month while I had cake class for 3 hours.

    Addison still hasn't been left with anyone for more than 15-20 minutes at a time. That's mostly because she doesn't know anyone though since we live 300 miles from all of our family and 4-5 months usually passes in between time when they see her.

    For example, my cousin's gf wants DH and I to go out with her for her 21st in November when we are down there but I don't feel comfortable leaving Addison with my family since she has only seen my mom 3 times and everyone else once. DH agrees with me completely. I know we need attention to our marriage, but I feel like there are other ways of doing that without leaving a baby with people she wouldn't be comfortable with.

    So I'm no help, but if you can do it more power to you!
