    With a baby this young I think you have to do whatever feels right to you and trust that your family will understand. Personally, from when our bub was around 1 1/2 months until just after 6 months we went out to see friends for dinner, etc at least 3-4 times a week. At that age, she would just sleep in the hugabub or ergo on DP or i and not get at all over stimulated while we got some adult conversation. After 6 months she was too alert to do that anymore and I miss the freedom we had then.

    I would have went but that's just me, by the time my daughter was 2 months she had been to a wedding 4 hours from home, a 60th birthday 5 hours from home, a birthday party 10hiurs from home, her great grandmothers birthdat 8hours away and a sporting event 11hours from home all of which were at night.

    You have to do what is right for you though. We were of the opinion the longer u put it off the harder it will be

    Hun, always do what you feel is right. There's no point in causing yourself anxiety because you feel you that you don't have much of a choice.
    DS is 8 months old & DH & I have decided to start going out as a family once a week. Everyone thinks we're crazy for not taking him out at night up until now, but they're not the ones that'll have to deal with a ****ed off baby. His bedtime is 7pm so the latest we'll be taking him out is 8:30pm.
    I was always anxious and avoided family events or had somebody come over and babysit while DH and I went. If your bub can fall asleep anywhere & your family will actually *let* him fall asleep, then It shouldn't be too bad.

    I've got my sil's engagement party & my cousins wedding next month so unfortunately he'll have to stay up late those nights. It's taken me 8 months to feel comfortable with this.

    You know best what's right for you and your baby. Every mum and bub is different = )
