  • My son is 2. I do not trust the women in the nursery, I know too much about them. My husband is always working on Sunday mornings so I haven't been back. I figure when my son is older, we will go again. I do not believe you need church to have a good relationship with God. My husband and I talk about all of this to our son. He is 2.

  • A few weeks. We sat in the overflow room. Our church is pretty big and this is where people can sit with their kids. She slept through the whole service. God bless you! Now she's 1 yr and she goes to the nursery with other babies. They give us a number and if she is fussy they will put the number up on a screen but we never get called. :)

  • We started going back when my son was a month old, but he's 8 months and we still aren't going every week. It stinks not getting to Church every week, but often times we all get up, get ready and fed and then our little one is ready for a nap. It definitely takes time

  • We started attending my Church when my dd was 6 months old. Right now there are babies there that are younger and my Church does not have a nursery. They do have an "overflow" room but the older people who have mobility issues tend to fill that up, so we are all right out there in the main body of the Church. Nobody seems to mind at all if one of the babies is being loud, we actually get smiles all the time. I try to feed my dd before we go in because I breastfeed but there have been a couple of times that I have had to do that right there in the pew too because it was too cold and snowy outside to run back out there to do it (we do sit in the very back and I have a nursing cover in case of that).
