And if you have not yet, when do you think you and baby will be ready for a night apart?
I ask because I have not spent the night away from my little lady yet. The main reasons being that we are exclusively breast feeding, we co-sleep, and I just can't imagine spending the night apart yet! But I feel like there is all this pressure to part with her. More specifically when it comes to a trip we will be taking to Hawaii for a WEEK in February for my best friends wedding, my husband thinks we should leave Marley here with my sister. Marley will be 10 months old. I CANNOT imagine leaving her for a week. He knows I intend to take her with, and I think he's coming to terms with it, but when people ask where Marley is staying while we're in Hawaii and I tell them she's coming with, they look at me like I'm crazy and say "well that won't be much fun!"
Really?? I've traveled a lot and remember seeing couples on the beach with their babies and thinking about how I couldn't wait to share that experience with my kids.
Is it really that bad going on vacation with your kids???
