How old was your baby the first night they spent away from you?

 If baby has not slept away from you yet, what age do you think you will be comfortable with that?

Um, I wouldn't say he slept away from us the whole night because we eventually came back but he was 11 months. I thought he was younger but I remember it being around my birthday because dh took me out.

My daughter was 5 months. I had to be away from her for a week because I had to do radiation for my thyroid cancer.

Nicolai has never slept away from me and he's 2.5. At this age I would be comfortable with it, if there was a reason for it and depending of course on who he was meant to stay with.

My dd was about 9 months but I was only ok with it because it was my mom. She is 6 now and sleeps over at grandmas all the time but only slept at a cousins once without me. The hardest was when she was about 3 and she stayed a couple nights with my mom because dh and I went on a business trip far away
