I apologize in advance that this is so long! But, how old was your DC when you left them for a weekend for the first time? If you haven't left them overnight yet, what do you think is a good age?
The reason I ask is that my grandma's 80th birthday is next weekend and all the "girls" in my family are going to the beach to celebrate (Fri-Sun). I really want to go because it will be fun to spend time with family I don't see that often and to make some special memories with my Grandma while she is still around.
But at the same time, the thought of leaving Jack overnight (much less for 3 days) about kills me. I would leave him with DH and I know he would be in great hands, but I would miss him and I feel guilty for even thinking about leaving him. My DH says to go - that it would be good for me to get some "me time", but I really think he just wants some daddy-son time.
Also, I'm nursing him and I worry that him feeding from a bottle exclusively for 3 days would affect his breastfeeding. Could this be an issue?
What would you do? TIA for any input!
