so, my DH has brought up when we should go on our first LO-less outing (not counting the OB appointment we had to go to thanks to my split open stitches...). He wants to go to a baseball game-and my grandparents have gladly offered to watch LO while we go. I guess I feel like it's still a little early for us to go do a 3-4 hour thing, and i'd rather our first outing be something for 1-2 hours. Her naps are pretty crappy, and the only way she gets a decent nap is if i hold or wear her. not to mention, thanks to reflux, she doesn't eat well and there are certain ways to feed her to make sure her reflux isn't aggravated. I know you have trade offs when someone else watches your baby, but reflux is different than just a cranky baby-she chokes and what not if she isn't fed the right way.
So my questions for you mommas is when did you go on your first date without LO, how long and what did you do? Any advice and past stories (especially with babies who aren't super easy going) will help. I do want to go on a date with my husband and establish at least a bimonthly date night- I just don't know a good age to do this or how long the first few outings should be!
