Ok so I’m feeling very nervous. My little boy is 6.5 months old and tomorrow will be my first night away from him, my younger sister is looking after him. Her and her husband and kids (3) will come to mines to stay.
I feel so nervous, I’m worried he won’t settle as house will be too busy, I’m worried about the sleeping situation because he still will only sleep on my chest. My sister said he’ll be fine and I know she’s experienced with having 3 kids. I just feel so anxious about the whole thing.
However, after him sleeping on my chest for this long and being up constantly through the night I do desperately need a break and me and my partner haven’t shared a bed since he was born due to the co sleeping situation so as a couple we also need this time.
I feel so selfish but we just need a little time for us.
I don’t even know why I’m posting really, just looking for some reassurance that maybe the first night away isn’t as bad as you imagine?
My MIL has said she won’t babysit until he sleeps so unfortunately we’ll rarely have the opportunity to do this and I wouldn’t expect my sister to do this often with having 3 young kids of her own, so I’m hoping to make the most of this.
