When was the first time you went out?

After the baby was born when was the first time you went out on a date or with friends and had someone watch your baby?

My little man is 8 weeks old and my best friends bday is tonight and he wants us to get a babysitter (my parents) to watch him so we can go out with him. He's been asking for weeks now and I feel so irrational trying to explain this to a man without kids how hard it is to leave your new baby. I was wondering if it was just me and I'm a crazy mom or if 8 weeks is too young to leave with grandparents to go out for.l a night.

I had to leave my son at like 10 days old, but it was because my dh was ill and I needed to take him back to the hospital.

He was probably 6 or 7 weeks when I left him for a night out

You left your baby with a sitter 12 hours after he/she was born to go out with your husband?

It was 3 weeks later. Dfs mom watched the baby while we went with my oldest and my mom to her work party. A week later, we went out to see my uncles band play.
