  • I don't think so. It's about your comfort level here. If you feel it's okay then go for it. I don't see why not. Have fun!

  • No its not to early my mom took my oldest dd at 3 weeks for about 2 or 3 hrs so I could do what I needed to. If your comfortable and feel your mothers capable go ahead and have your date you still need adult time too.

  • It's not too early, but I couldn't do it personally. Not THAT early anyway. I'm really possessive and with breastfeeding that would be a nightmare :P My daughter is almost 9mths old and still hasn't been away from me for a date night, lol. Gotta do that soon!!

  • I don't think so, I had to go for an interview last Friday and I left my little guy (he's 6 weeks today)with a co-worker (we're teachers so we have this time off) for a couple hours. He slept the whole time.

  • No - he'll be fine. My mom has kept all 4 of my children for a few hours at a time since they were like 2-3 wks old. Always between feedings, so it was very short at first, but it feels so good to just go out with your husband and enjoy yourself!
