So my son just turned four weeks old this past sunday. My bfs mom came over yesterday after work to say hi and see him. She made a comment and keeps making them about me pumping so he can stay over at her house. Uhhh..yeah I dont think so.. I feel like she's just waiting for me to put him on the bottle so she can have him overnight but I'm not gonna be comfortable with that for a while.

How old was your little one when they stayed away from you with a grandparent for the first time and were you breastfeeding or formula feeding?

 My son's never stayed overnight away from us before (except when I have to be at work overnight, but then he's with my husband). He's 4. I don't think I would until a year old.

My ds was 9 months and that was only bc my dh was having an outpatient procedure done at 6 am the next morning. He was formula feed.

My son was probably 8 weeks when he first stayed at my moms overnight. After that he stayed almost every other Friday or Saturday night with her. But now my dd is 8 months and has never stayed anywhere. She will hardly stay with daddy long enough for me to go to the store. She is breastfed with no bottles.

My son stayed for the first time around 14 months. The only reason he did was because my husband works third shift at work and I had a super early call time for my job. I had to be in at 4:30. He was in milk by then. Since he's only stayed away 3 times, each for the same reason.

My mother-in-law was pressuring since birth for a sleep over too. Do it when it feels right to you.
