Nervous about vacationing away from baby

Anonymous

I'm considering surprising my partner with a cruise for Christmas since he's never been on one and we desperately need a quick vacation. However, my LO will only be 7 months by cruise date and I am terrified of being away from him. Is there any way to feel comfortable about being away? Or should I consider a different gift?

    I just went to Vegas with my husband for the weekend. I was feeling guilty and bad for leaving my LO but at the end I was so happy we did it. We were able to better our relationship and be recharged. As long as you leave your LO with someone you 100% trust and your baby is a pretty good baby, you will be okay and happy you did it.

    You hit the nail on the head, Caroline. The point is for us to have a getaway because I have been total focused on my LO.

    Yes!!! I recently am a stay at home mom for a little and as much as I love her.. I needed some time away and I love my husband to and your relationship with your husband has to be healthy.(not saying yours isn’t) lol just you have to take care of yourself and your relationship with your SO. It’s healthy for everyone! :)
