I waited until my now 2yr old was 7 months old before letting her stay overnight. My 2nd baby is almost 3 months old and I'm already thinking about letting her stay at Grandma's. Things are definitely different the second time around. I'm so in need of some adult time, it's sad. But I don't want to put my needs before the baby's needs. My sense of self as well as my marriage could really use this time apart. I'm trying really hard not to feel guilty, but ever since I've become a mom, guilt is one of my top stressors. Any words of encouragement?
