  • When my son was 2-2 1/2 months old, I went back to work for a few months. I left him with my sister while I worked. First time I left him overnight, he was probably around 7 months old, he stayed with in laws for one night. The longest he has been away was for 2 1/2 days a few weeks ago with my sister and my mother. He is 17 months old now.
