When my 5th baby was 2months old I was invited to go out for the night. I reluctantly went...I really didn't want to go but peer pressure got to me. I didn't stay out overnight though, I just couldn't do it it was too soon and I was still trying to establish bf'ing so had to pump while out which was awkward.

OP if you want to go and feel fine leaving bub, then dont worry about what others say. There is no right age and everyone is different.
Same goes for if you dont want to leave your baby overnight - then just simply say you're not ready, a true friend will understand

Personally I always find it hard whatever the age especially if DP and I both plan to be away

If you are comfortable with it, and whoever bub its left with, then go for it!!
Personally, for me, I still havent left ds (2y8m) overnight, and have always put him into bed. He still wakes overnight, is very county to new and wont resettle for df, will for my mum after some time.
In saying that though, I also haven't had the need too.

I don't think I would at that young age because of breastfeeding. You are staying away from the baby all day and night, it's not only overnight. Maybe I would Rothbrust day or night if the newborn stayed with DH but not for entire 24 hours like that.

DS was 4 months the first time my mom had him for half the night purely so I could sleep for more than an hour straight. My boobs nearly exploded! The first night he went the whole night without me because I was actually "out" was when he was 2 years old, haha.

As others have said, only you can decide when the right time is.
For me, it would be some time after 12 mths I think. DD was about 16mths. DS is 12 mths but still breastfeeds during the night so it will be a while before he is ready for a sleepover.
