Re: First night away from 9 month old
my first night away was at 6 months, for a job interview. DS stayed with his dad. they did better than i expected - but it was hard being away! and getting up in the middle of the night to pump was no fun at all. i can't say that it was a fun exciting time away for me, but it was manageable for everyone. i'm not sure that even now at 14 months i'd do a night away for fun.
