Nope, he still nurses at night, but I have spent the entire day away shooting weddings (10-11 hours).

No. I'm a freak - I admit it! My brother mentioned that we should all go out, and dump our kids at my mom's house one weekend, and I swear my anxiety level rose! YIKES!!!

My BIL is turning 30 in February - which may be cause for a Vegas weekend - so he may be staying with my inlaws then!! But - I keep my little guy close to me!

Only if you count her staying in the hotel room directly across the hall from us. We have done that twice....once with his parents and once with my mom. We got her as soon as we got up. I doubt we will do it anytime soon at home as his parents live an hour away and he won't let her stay there because they are old, some health problems and there isn't a hospital close enough for his liking

Um, I must be a freak! But HECK YES she has stayed away. And in fact, she is spending the night at my inlaws' house this weekend. The primary reason she stays away is because all my family lives 35 - 45 minutes away. If we want to go out for the evening, it is too much trouble to drive all the way out there twice to drop them off and pick them up. Usually its a Saturday night and my folks or my sister will bring them to church Sunday morning.

Natalie spent one night at my mom's house so we could go out of town for a football game. She'll probably spend the night next weekend too. It wasn't nearly as bad as I thought it was going to be but I sure missed her like crazy that next day.

Parker has stayed away two weekends. It was kind of nice to get away and just be a person for a weekend, but I missed my baby, that's for sure! I am not real big on being gone from him now with how much he changes day-to-day. Also, during the summer I was with him all the time, so it didn't bother me as much. Now I am back at work and I want to spend all my spare time with him.

Nope! She needs her Mama still. We nurse and don't use a pacifier. If I leave her it is only with DH, and just for an hour of 2.

My mom offered to keep Logan overnight for me tonight. I told her what her night would be like and she still said she would. But then she told me the kids weren't going to their mother's until tomorrow so I just told her no. DS1 was spending the night away when he was a month old. He had stayed several nights with my mom by the time he was one. I think Logan needs to stay with me though.

I'd do it if I had family close by and if I didn't think that Reid would keep them up ALL night. He is such a mamma's boy when it comes to night time. He even gives his Dad a hard time....I just don't see him going easy on anyone else all night. Maybe when he's older....
