On a parenting website I'm active on, there was a discussion about leaving your child overnight. I left mine (with plenty of expressed milk, of course) at about four-six weeks with my mother in law so I could go out and have a few drinks and have some me time with my man and some other family and friends. I ended up running from my house to hers after town and staying there though cause I missed him! He's stayed overnight there and with another friend two or three more times since then.
Anyway, some people seem pretty divided on this and someone even said that they think it's wrong that people leave their babies that early on.
Some people on the forum hadn't left their kids overnight with anyone and they're going on three, and other people were like me and had left them overnight in the first couple of months.
I'd love to hear other people's thoughts about this.
How old was your child before you left them overnight with someone else?
