My baby is going to grandparents overnight while my husband and I go on a date. He is 5 months old and it will be his first time overnight. I'm so scared that my parents will make a mistake or something will happen to him (and I have no reason to think this) Any tips for how you handle letting someone else take your baby overnight.

The first time we left DD with my parents (who are completely amazing parents and grandparents), we pulled out of their driveway and I turned to my husband and I said "I hope they don't killl her".
You don't get over it. Never. She is in first grade now and I am still convinced on a cellular level that unless I am looking at her every second of every day she will suffer some horrible fate.
Ask me - "Wimsey, isn't it true that every time your daughter been seriously hurt, you or your dear, dear DH been right next to her?"
Hangs head in shame.....the truth doesn't change how I feel.
