If the person looking after my child was making negative comments about me going away it would make me re-think wanting to go.
It is not a one-size fits all answer, I think 2 nights would be too much for my kids and also for my parents who I imagine would be exhausted for work come Monday!

I think go for it, their with family you trust. Why shouldn't you? I have to let my daughter go to her fathers for a week of school holidays and since she was about 2 she had overnight stays
At first they were hard but now I've learnt to enjoy some time to myself, which in no way means I don't miss her like crazy or freak out for the first 5 seconds in the morning when she's not in bed!

Ignore the comments OP, a weekend away with hubby will likely make for a happier relationship, a happier home which in turn will positively impact your DD.

My DS goes to his dads every 2nd weekend for 2 nights, and when DS dad has holidays he will stay for a week, this has been for 18 months. It's normally and healthy to miss him, but I should never be made to feel guilty.
Enjoy your time away

Lucky you! Enjoy and don't spend one moment feeling guilty or worrying. Your dd is in great hands and you and your dh deserve a break especially with a new bub on the way. In fact I think it is a very responsible thing to do to make sure you don't get burnt out and can be the best parent possible. Xx

Don't feel bad. Enjoy your holiday. You're daughter will be ok. So will you. So will your mum. My parents used to work and also go for weekends away together when we were kids. Sometimes we went with them, sometimes we didn't. We loved staying at our grandparents and aunties and uncles. You sometimes need to have couple time when you have kids. Don't let anyone make you feel guilty. It's only a few days for goodness sake!
