Hi guys. I'm not sure I'm posting in the right section but at what age would you leave your new born baby with a friend, overnight, so you can have a bit of a drinky/normalcy back in your life?

Leaving a newborn baby
13-08-2012 12:48 #2
Personally not till they're at least 1 1/2. Definitely not a newborn and I'd have to trust the person looking after them.
Also it would have to be for a special occasion, not just to go out and party but that's just me.

I had a 40th bday to go To 2 weeks after giving birth, I had bub organised To go To my sisters for the night but my fiancé wouldn't leave her so he stayed home. This weekend we have another a 30th to go to so bubs is going to my mums (but not overnight, only cause she has to be somewhere at 5 Sunday morn) but again my fiancé doesn't want to leave her for the night. She will be 7 weeks, I'm a bit more easy about it. I trust them and I jnow if there was a problem they'd call and it is my second. But it's when your ready and comfortable.

My first night away from DS1 was our wedding night and he was 6 months.
DS2 is 9 months and I've not done an overnight away from him yet.

My ds is 16 months old and I'm still yet to leave him with anyone overnight. The first time I left him with anyone apart from DH was at 9 months (my sister babysat so we could go to friend's wedding reception), it was at 6pm so he slept the whole time.

I personally would not leave a newborn to go out drinking. I have a friend who recently left her 7 week old to go out clubbing. each to their own i suppose.
The first time i went out on a bender since DS was born was when he was just shy of 1, but that wasnt from lack of opportunity.

Never a newborn. Maybe around 1.5-2, and I'd only leave them with SIL, MIL or my mum.

I wouldn't leave my newborn so I could get drunk. He had his first night away from me at 10 months so I could go to a close friend's hens night. He stayed with his father though. I have a relative who left their 2 week old (-3 weeks corrected) with her mother so she could have a drink with friends. Each to their own, but I wont apologise for judging.

First night away was when DS wa 9 weeks old for a christmas do. I left him with my mum but was only gone 3 hours. Since he was born (9.5months ago) I have only left him maybe 4 times to do something for myself but never overnight yet
I have a "friend" who still goes out every weekend and leaves her bub with her mum. Her baby is 8 weeks old and has gone out 7 weekends (every weekend except the first week) it really annoys me but that is a whole other thread!
