I'm curious as to if you have left your child(ren) for the night and if so, how old was he/she? My daughter is 7 months old and i have not left her yet. We co-sleep, exclusively breast feed, and I never let her cry it out. It really comes down to thinking we're not ready to spend the night or a weekend apart yet, but I get a lot of grief from people about it. It can be bothersome, but I try to let it go because their pressure isn't going to make me change my mind about it. But I have been thinking about it more and more. We will also be going to Hawaii for a week in February and I plan to take Marley (she'll be 10 months then) and I was/am very excited to go on a big vacation with her, but it seems like everyone, including my husband, thinks its a bad idea and think I'm crazy for wanting to take her. This part does get annoying!
Any thoughts or advice??
