I definitely considered it when dd1 was a baby. She was and is a great sleeper. The shops were 5 minutes away and I could be in and out and back home within 15 minutes. I absolutely considered leaving her home alone. But I just couldn't do it. The risks were just too high. I did once lock myself out of the house with her inside once when she was a baby. It was a long 20 minutes wait while I waited for my mum to bring the spare key. Lucky she slept through it.
I have left dd2 home alone as a baby with a monitor while I went 2 doors up before for 5 minutes. But that's my limit.

OMG no. Would never do that. Ever.
There was a thread on here a couple of years ago where a mum did something similar, except she would leave both kids asleep alone in the mornings while she went for an hour run or something ridiculous.

Nope definately no way.. I live rurally and do duck to the letterbox, attend to animals nearby in close paddocks etc but house is always in view and take mobile baby monitor with me.. Never ever would consider leaving the property. When I feel generous I do occasionally pick DH up from the footy sheds or pub once in a blue moon but I always take the sleeping kids wth me. If they wake they easily go back to sleep once they're home in their beds/ cot.

I live 100 metres from a supermarket and I wouldn't do that! It's wrong from both sides-if something happened to Bub or if something happened to me!!!! I had someone tell me I should do it when DD was a baby and I questioned if they had recently had a lobotomy
I remember hearing once that it only takes 7 minutes for a house to burn down. So I stay close while she's sleeping.

Not only is that highly illegal it is extraordinarily stupid. I would point out to her the illegality of it and honestly if it were a person I knew who did it as a regular thing I would call DOCS on them.
The issue I see here is that she has done it successfully therefore the temptation would be to keep doing it.

As to the above post if I do attempt a 'run' lol.. I do couch2five and run laps around the house.. DS sometimes joins in for a little while then when he's done he goes inside or chases the cat or something!

I would ask bed to promise me she would never do it again.
