How old was your LO when they first stayed overnight somewhere else?

My son is only 3 1/2 months old and my mom is already asking to keep him overnight. I'm not quite ready to let him go ALL night yet. How old were your kids when you finally let them go?

  • Both of our parents wanted him over nigh and begged all the time. We let him start staying around a month and half to two months. I don't remember exactly when- he did great :)

  • I think my baby was probably like 6 weeks or so...
    My hubby and I went to BG all day once when Evan was like 3 1/2 or 4 weeks old
    I let my mom take him all the time when I have to work and my hubby does too

  • My son was 10 months old. He didn't really stay overnight though, lol, my MIL and FIL kept him all night but it was while we were on our family cruise and they were only two floors away on the ship, so he was within a 5 minute elevator ride away. I still ended up checking on him an hour or so after we left him with them to make sure he fell asleep okay, which he did. After that the next time and first real time I suppose he stayed overnight was with my mother and he was 16 months old. He did great though! Now he's just over 2 1/2 and he spends a night or two with my mother every other month just about.

  • My sonw as born May 1st...he stayed at grandmas house July 19th so mommy and daddy could go to a concert. It is good to let them go and have some time to yourself. Plus its gets them used to staying around other people
