  • He was...7 months I believe and I left him with my whole family (mom, dad and 3 siblings) while I went to visit my husband in San Diego for a week (he was leaving for Iraq).

    My second son I left him for 6 hours at 7 weeks old to go to my checkup and run a bunch of errands.

  • I had to go back to work when my son was 10 weeks old, so he went to a baby sitter. and my daughter was 7 weeks old when I went back to work. They have had the same babysitter since then, and they are 3 and 5.
