Judge all you like, we left DS with my parents overnight ( at our place) when he was 5 weeks old so we could go to DH's works Christmas do and stay in the city and yes drink
DS was fed, tended to and just as happy as he would have been if we were there.
If you have someone you trust to look after them and you are able to then why ever not, for what ever reason.

Hmmm I personally wouldn't before one overnight. Even in the day. Ds3 is 8 months and I left him for 3 hours in the day (with daddy) and it was horrible!
However I strongly believe in happy mum happy children... If you think you need it then go for it.

My son just had his first overnight stay with my parents two weeks ago (I had my 30th birthday party at our house and we didn't want him to be there with all the noise etc) he's 9 months old. But...he's been babysat by my best friend and my parents on a few occasions so that we can go out for dinner or the movies etc.
I've also left him with DH while I was out at hens nights or similar. I reckon, whenever you feel ready

And just to clarify, if its for an outing thats just fine, but if its for you to just go to the bar and drink then i don't think its right to leave your new born

Personally, FOR ME, I wouldn't want to be away from my newborn at all. To me it's normal for mum and bub to be joined at the hip (well... mouth to boob) day and night for at least the first 6 weeks. Isn't that how breastfeeding works?
I do believe though that if you have a very supportive family and you feel like you need some time away to rest then you should do that. Not really to go out drinking though.
As for over-nighters, My eldest is 2.5 and he's spent one night away from me when I had DD and the private hospital I birthed in INSISTED I stay the night even though I was fine! I hated it, and plan on going public next time simply so I can go home and not have to be away from my family!!
