    Whenever YOU feel comfortable with it. While its not for everyone, if YOU are happy with whoever they are left with and they are safe, will be fed etc go for it.

    I was always too nervous to leave newborn DS with anyone, I used to hate others even holding him lol. I think he was about 2 years old when he stayed at my parents house overnight so I could go to a wedding that was hours drive away.

    I think if I have another baby I will have to learn to lighten up a bit. I'll have no issue leaving him/her with DP so I can see my friends. I'm not into drinking too much but love my dinners with my girlfriends. I won't be stopping those just because I've had a baby.

    I think DS was about 3 months old when we left him with my mum for a night (at our home) so that we could go to a wedding. we were back by 10pm.

    We left DD for 2 nights when she was 3 months old.

    I wasn't getting enough sleep and the stress was setting off my epilepsy really badly. So we went on a holiday for two nights, no baby. Slept and ate and showered in peace. Went on nice peaceful walks through the bush.
    She stayed with MIL.

    Came back and I was raring to go, full of mum energy.

    I'd never leave a newborn overnight. DS is 9 months and as yet we havent left him overnight but if we did it would be with my mum and we wouldnt be going out drinking. We'd be going home to get our first full nights sleep since forever!

    My Dd was 2 when she had her first sleepover and that was with family. Some of my friends think I'm silly though.

    I'm just struggling not to be a judgmental ***** to be honest. I don't know how women can leave their young babies (spesh newborn). I just don't get it?

    Yeah I wouldn't leave a newborn overnight, ever. Normality for me with a newborn was feeds every 2 hours. I personally have never left my DS overnight and he is 15 months and I don't intend on doing so any time soon. I know a few Mum's who chose to celebrate becoming a Mother (their words) by leaving 2 week old bubs and getting drunk, I really try not to care about what other people do but this way of thinking is just strange to me!

    I personally have never left my children overnight with anyone for any reason and never would but I do agree with the above poster.
