  • You mean without the baby? or with? either way yes, if without, you need your time or you will go crazy. If with sure why not, you can't stop your life because you had a baby. I guess it would depend on how much your out, yah go out!

  • As long as you have a good caregiver, it's fine for BABY. Sounds to me, though, like it's something you really don't want to do YOURSELF.

    Go talk it over with the woman in your mirror. Assure her that baby is well cared for when you're not there, so what does she think about hanging our with your friend. THAT is the real issue... do you want to do it"?

  • It's perfectly normal to have a life even if you have a baby. Getting out for a few hours here and there is fair to both of you!!

  • As long as the baby is in good hands, go. You'll be refreshed when you come back.
