For those of you who aren't comfortable leaving your babies with someone else overnight does this include your partner? Have you ever had a night, or even a full day where you went out and left your partner to do it all?
I don't even hesitate to leave DS (or the older three) with his father. I go to early markets with a girlfriend and leave him to tend to all 4, I've gone away for a weekend and left them all at home. I don't see it as any different from him going out or away and me being at home with the kids (obviously if you're breastfeeding exclusively then this is different, I understand that).
