My son spent his first night away at grandma’s (5 minutes from us) at 5 weeks old and does this about once a month. She loves taking care of him and we are thankful for the restful nights. We left him overnight with a friend at almost 4 months. We are now planning a 4 night trip where he will stay with my sister-in-law at 7 months old. I think it depends on your trust in who will be caring for them. If we didn’t have people who we knew were wonderful parents and would be able to keep to his schedule then we wouldn’t be ok with so many nights away. Tbh we would have gone insane a long time ago if we didn’t get time away from him and he’s only 4 months. 😂 i also think the earlier you do this the more independence the child gains.
