  • With my parents yes. I don't know about my husband's parents but not because I don't trust them, but because they live so far away and my son has only met them a few times, the last time being over a year ago, so since he doesn't know them well he might be a little scared. But he knows my parents very well, so yes.

  • That depends not the relationship of the family. Does the child want to go? With my mother and father, yes, I would let my DD stay over night away with them when she is that age. FIL or MIL-- not a chance

  • If I trusted them I would have no problem...Then again, when my dad was alive, then yes. My FIL, maybe. My MIL, HELL NO.

  • I would if one of the grandparents was capable. Alas they don't have that (both my dad and my mil are disabled).

  • If they are trust worthy.. I always let my kids stay over night with my parents, during the summer sometimes they would spend a week with them.. when I had my last child, I left her with my parents at 7 months old for a week while we took our two older kids on a vacation.. it was something that we all needed, and I knew my baby was in good hands, the baby would not enjoy the trip .. so all of us had a great time , and grandma and grandpa totally enjoyed that special time with our tiny one.. As long as you trust your parents, then by all means give them that time to bond with their grandchild.
