    No I wouldn't do it. For a baby your DS's age or an older child. Overseas or in Australia. Too many weirdos and pedophiles that are good at hiding who they really are from unsuspecting parents.

    The only care I will consider for my gild is being babysat by someone I know or being looked after in a childcare centre I know.

    You're not precious and you're not a hover mum! You're just a mum. A mum who has her limits and who is uncomfortable with certain things and situations. I left DS with my in laws a few weeks ago, 11pm hit and I started to cry because I felt so worried about something happening. I knew nothing would happen and that he was in bed sleeping peacefully but that's just me sometimes.
    You do what's right for you. You need to have a good night as well : )

    I am back to being torn - but I guess its not something you can make yourself feel comfortable with, I wish I could be this carefree and trusting at times, I'm still reluctant to leave DS with MIL & FIL.

    I would have gone off my tree as well. You're only human.
    Hope tomorrow is a better day for you x

    No I wouldn't. The only people who ever babysit for me are family members or very close friends who know my children.

    Just because I'm comfortable with it, doesn't mean you should be we have friends who are quote happy to take their kids out at night, and theyre always trying to get us to meet them for dinner with all the kids. That is my idea of personal hell, and I wouldn't do it, because I wouldn't enjoy myself and my kids are used to being in bed asleep by 6.30! Why force yourself to do something just because others think it's fun? Actually come to think of it, that's one of my pet hates, when people try to convince you that something will be fun when you know for certain it won't be, lol.

    Haha, I read your post exactly how you had intended it which I assume was just to express that bad things can and do happen.

    Ipersonally wouldn't... But I've never left any of my boys with a stranger so prolly a lil bias... I would probably consider it over 2/3 but not at 1, still such a baby. But then I've never left my 20 moth old with anyone, even family...

    Dont feel pressured. Give them an ultimatum if you need to. Bub comes with me or I don't come... That's what id do. One year olds don't do much!
