Okay so my birthday is coming up & DH wants to take me out. This would be the first time I'd really be away from DD. what if she cries the whole time because I'm not there!?!? Poor girl! I'll feel so terrible....
It's really making me not want to go out :(


Okay ladies I went out! I had butterflies in the beginning of the night thinking about DD. DH called his mom a few times to check up. He didn't want me calling cause he knew if I heard her crying I'd feel bad. We had dinner then met a couple friends at a bar & had a couple drinks & played pool. I had a great night! 

She did so good! She cried for about 20 minutes. But it was around 8:00 & that is when she starts to get cranky. It took her a few tries to take the bottle because she very rarely has a bottle. But she took it & ate! 

We got home around midnight & DD was sleeping like an angel!

She woke up about 30 minutes after we got home but DH told me to go to bed & he fed her & put her back to sleep. (:

Thanks ladies for all your encouraging words!!!

I feel your dilemma. But just tell urself that she'll be fine. It's natural to worry but try to enjoy every minute of your time out.

You go out. Have some hubby time. She will be with grandma. She will be fine. Grandma and her can have time too.

Go out.  Have fun.  It's harder on you than it is on them.

Has the baby spent any time with grandma before? If not, have her come over as often as possible to have them get used to eat other. If so, they will do great together!

I know you have said she cries around her before. Maybe you being totally gone would give them the chance to finally bond?
