At what age did your baby spend the night away from you for the first time?
My son is almost 5 months old. My in-laws want to take him, for the weekend. I'm totally freaking out. Yes, this is my first child. Yes, this will be the first time away from him for more than like, 3 hours. But am I crazy to think that an entire weekend (from this afternoon to Monday) is just a little absurd. He doesn't know them, as we live in another state (we are visiting)... So I think it's going to be stressful on us both. His parents smoke, and I can't be sure that they would not expose him to that. I mean, I trust them as far as taking care of him. Feeding, diapering, bathing, etc. I'm just nervous. Did you guys go through this! And if you did, how did you occupy yourself? I'll probably get less sleep withOUT him around, haha!
How do I keep from having an anxiety attack. I'm going crazy over here.
