I know everyone's situation is different but I am just curious as to how old baby was (or will be) the first time you left them (aside from hospital stuff).
I am having a hard time making appointments for things (taxes, etc) because I don't want to take baby (flu season) and I don't want to leave him with anyone aside from my husband and he works all the time during the week.
Shelby has been with family that has been in town (our parents) and/or my BFF while DH and I have run out or stuff like that.
DH did take me on a date night last Saturday and we went to the rodeo. One of my fav groups (Lady Antebellum) was playing and made the hour away trip there. We are trying to get this all in while we can because once they leave we will not be doing anything without the kiddos coming with us.
he is only 5 days so have not left him yet and tbh i probably wont for a very long time, none of my kids have ever really been left with anyone for a long period of time except their dad, only other times they are left is if i have an appointment they cant come too then either mine or his mum looks after them
My baby will be 3 weeks on Thursday. I left her with my DH for 1.5 hours this morning to take my dad to his oncologist appointment. It was torture! I missed my baby so much. I haven't taken her out, except for doctor appts, since she came home because of all the flu that's going around.

I've already crossed that bridge She was 6 days old when I left her with DH to go to class for 8 hours, 7 and 8 days old when both her and her brother went to the sitter's house so I could go to clinicals however DH picked her up about an hour and a half later and kept her until I got home and picked up Riley. It sucks leaving her but I know it's for a good reason and it's only through the first week of May at this point (Graduation). I know she's in good hands with hubby and our sitter is like our surrogate mom and have no qualms leaving her there all day in a few weeks. For now it's just until hubby gets off and can pick her up because of all the germs out there. Thankfully for that hour and a half that she is there twice a week the only kiddos she has are Riley and her middle/high school age grandkids and they're asleep when i drop her and Riley off.
Baby Girl expected 2.12.13!

missing our Feb. 2012
I will be one of the odd ones and say that I don't leave my kids for a very very long time. My 3 year old has only been left with my mil a few times for doctor appointments that she cant come with me to. Same with my 1 1/2 year old. Dh and my mil are the only ones to watch them. Also since I ebf, baby goes where I go. If I cant take a baby somewhere then I don't go.

I have only left her with DH for 2 hours or less because in nursing and not pumping yet. The only time she will stay with anyone else is daycare starting at 6 weeks old because I have to go back to work
My children have never been left with anyone but DH with the exception of when I had Tierney and Talon, and the hospital would not allow them to be there so when I had Tierney, the kids went to stay with my mom for a few hours and when I had Talon they went to stay with my MIL for 2 hours. Even now they have never been left with a babysitter, I have trust issues (That stem from a rather traumatic incident I went through) when it comes to leaving my children with anyone and even if I completely trusted the person (and there is 1 or 2 people I trust with them if it came down to it) it gives me major amounts of anxiety and more often then not panic attacks (Especially if they spend the night at friends houses).
