    I left DD with my mum for a bit over an hour at 3 weeks so I could get my hair cut. My mum almost threw me out of the house but man did I need (and enjoy) that haircut!! I left her with her dad overnight a few times to travel for work when she was over one but the first time we went away for a night just the two of us, DD was 2 and we left her with my parents.

    I think DS was about 3 months when we first left him to go to a party. He slept the whole time.

    We're going to a wedding in a couple of months and are planning to leave both kids with my parents for a night but I'm starting to feel nervous!!

    Do it when you feel ready and maybe just for short periods until you feel comfortable.

    With my first I left him with DH (now XH) for a couple of hours to visit my dad in hospital. After that it was then over a year before I left him for any length of time. My mum was the only one I left him with.
