  • Maybe for one day but you know your baby is in good hands and she is probably having fun you are just missing your baby so bacly and you are alone at the moment that is why it feels so intense don't worry you baby is fine and before you know it she will be back in your arms. Just take deep breaths and do something to occupy your body and mind. GL

  • My mom has been taking my dd every other weekend (just for one night) since 3 weeks old! We left dd with mom for our anniversery cruise for a week. She'll be 2 next month. :)

    Don't worry about it. It's always harder on you than the baby. So just keep busy.

  • I went to the Bahamas for a week with a friend of mine and left my 2 "men" at home to be batchelors. My son was 1 yo. I had a ball. There were no worries. I knew that all was well, so I didn't have any difficulties leaving for 7 days.

  • The longest I have been away from my daughter was one entire day, she spent the night with my mom so me and hubby could have some alone time.

  • Well, dh took dd over to his parents house for the day, because I have to study and it just feels weird being here all by myself. And yes yes, I'm about to study! I have to because she will be home around 730, so I gotta really take advantage of the time.
