Would you take your baby?

So, my babysitter is sick. I have a therapy appointment this morning but I don't know if I should take my 4 month old. I mean, there's nothing really major going on right now, just kinda feel, blah. But would you cancel your appointment or take the 4 month old?


Eta--- I ended up not going. My oldest got sent home at around 9:30 bc she was sick as well. My therapist understood and she said since the last appointment I was showing good signs that I should be fine until my appointment next week. I don't know now though. I feel like if it isn't one thing wrong now it's another. Why does everything build up in me AFTER the appointments or after I even talk to her on the phone?

Oh, and my referral for the physiologist went in but it can take up to another month for me to get in. Ugh, I hate feeling like this

For me, it would depend on her sleeping patterns, and what I'd need to do if she woke up. My colicky baby, I never would have. she didn't sleep almost at all, and then cried when awake. But a quieter baby who could be soothed by rocking or holding or a bottle if he woke up, or a baby who napped well, surer.

Good luck!

 I think I would try and take the baby with. Chances are the baby would just sleep or lay there and look around

I would take your baby.  I had to take my LO with me until he turned 6 mo.

I would. It might help seeing how you interact with her.

 All that matters is what do you want to do
