    Default Leaving a newborn baby

    Would I leave a newborn? No.
    Do I care about other parents having time away from their newborns? No.

    Who cares if someone wants to have a night out? Who cares if you don't want to leave your child until they are 18? It shouldn't be anybody else's business.

    Yeah that's like my dd. Won't take a bottle and She won't sleep unless she is with me. 14 months and counting since I had an evening to myself! I'm fine about it though. However ds was so different. I went out clubbing when he was a newborn.He slept with his dad or nanna (my mum) so easily, he didnt wake at night really and if he did he would happily take a bottle and be back to sleep. Plus I was younger then, actually had friends and felt like a night out. My son was cared for and safe. It May not be for everyone but it worked for us at that Time. My priorities were still my baby. I was probably gone for 5 hours max anyway.

    Meh. I left DS @ 4 months to go to a party and I had a ball. I had expressed and he was fine. Each to their own.

    I don't consider 4 months to be a newborn.
