My boyfriend wants to take our baby over to his Mom's house to spend the night. She is only 4 weeks old, but he says it's okay because he will be there spending the night with her. My main concerns are that:
-I am breastfeeding.
-I am worried about germs.
-I don't like people getting too touchy or too holdy with her. I don't like people passing her around from family member to family member a lot, either.
-I'm not ready to be without her for a night.
My boyfriend has said that he thinks she will be fine without me for the few nights that they stay, and that he will feed her formula. I really, really, really don't want her to have formula and I have discussed this with him, but she says he will be fine. I'm not ready to let her go spend the night anywhere else yet. I also know his family are those types of people that likes to get up in babies faces and kiss them and pass them around. It bugs me that he won't listen to me and I feel like the bad guy for saying no, because I know his family is mad at me.
Should I let him take her to spend the night? How old were you when you let your child spend the night for the first time at their grandparents house?

Next question overall
My husband just left us for apparently 'no reason'? So confused - would you...
