I don't get why men put the 'needs' of their mates above their wives. Men who don't want to be called soft or under the thumb by their mates.
I just wish that everyone would understand that family is always #1. If your family's need outweighs the needs of a friend, family should come first and friends should understand this.

Is it his best friend? Or really close friend?
I'm sorry but I'd have no issues with a stag night AFTER bub was born for his best friend. so late Nov/early Dec. Even if it was 5 days in NZ.

to say you're ok with a 5 night jaunt overseas when bub is tiny and she has an older kid is just applying YOUR situation to someone else and then saying what's the issue. there's no one size fits all. if she has a problem with it, I take that to mean she needs support.

However, if you want to let him go, is there anyone who could stay with you? Mum, sister, friend? They could watch the older bub while you focus on the newborn. That's the only way I'd let the post baby trip happen.
Pre-baby, I'd be annoyed he's even considering it.

Then there's the fact that we'll be down to one income and it's the month before xmas dropping $2k on a stag seems a bit like misplaced priorities. I just feel like I shouldn't have to point any of this out to him, and be put in the position of saying "no".

I would be saying no not on, but would still expect my dh to try it

No way would I be ok with it. Not in the slightest.

I hope he will begin to see this of his own accord rather than having to be told it's not fair on you. And $2k!? Would he be happy if you spent $2k on just yourself!?

I'm not sure how I would feel. With no 2 DH went back to work after a week. I would be fine for a night or 2 - but to a different country for up to 5 nights then most likely not.
