  • My mom always took me to my grandparents house because she had to work, I LOVED it. NEver thought she was a bad mom for it.

  • Take your breaks where you can get them WHILE you CAN get them Momma! Your not a bad Mom if Grammie takes the kid for one night!!!

  • If grandma is willing to take the baby and understands that he gets up - let her take him. Night after night of interrupted sleep is very taxing. I'm not saying its impossible to do, but its ok to accept help when its offered. With my first, I wanted to do it all myself. With my 2nd, I suddenly realized that people wouldn't offer if they didn't want to help so TAKE IT!

  • Same as mrsfitz. I wanted to be SuperWoman w/my 1st and do it all. HA! I learned and took everyone up on their offers w/baby #2!
