  • If you're not comfortable leaving the baby with a stranger and he's not the going out type your not going to be happy going out anyway. My husband is not the going out type either, so every now and then we put the kids to bed a little early and just do something by ourselves.

  • It is important for you to have time with your husband alone. I know this from experience. My husband and I have date nights ever so many months. We either have grandma watch her or a close friend that we trust watch her. Do you have any close friends with teens that might be able to watch your little one. Maybe that may convince your husband to go out then.
