We have three dc under 3.5, I'm Breastfeeding Ds who is 7months old.. We have been intited to a wedding reception tonight.. Dp has just gone.

I'm sat here all three asleep and feeling green with envy. I was meant to be going but I just don't feel 100% leaving Ds where he is still small (my girls are too of course but they are ok with their grandparents for a few hours if so) but Ds can be a good sleeper until about 12 some nights then feed a few before. So I don't want to take the risk as he won't take a bottle as I dread to think of him crying for me when in out.

It's only recent that I feel ok leaving him for an hour to do food shopping! But more so in the evening he is all for me at the minute. I bet you he sleeps well tonight! We was going to go out for like 7-11? All three go to grannies, 15mins away from the party. But I just don't feel like I can.

I felt the same when my girls were smaller. I love being at home with my babies, wouldn't change it for the world. And nights out are a rare occurrence ad that was my choice, and still is. But sometimes I would like to feel at ease to have an evening out. Dp obviously finds it easier as he works.. So not with. Them all day but I do hard it hard.

How do you find getting out with small ones?

Side note: I trust the people we would leave them with (grandparents) but I just feel like I can't relax like dp does

Can you plan an evening out when your dp looks after them all? Then you can relax properly. It's not time together, but you know that will come with time.

I think this time was the hardest because it's just before it all gets better...

It gets better, remember!

I feel the same as you. My dd is nearly 8 moths old and I haven't been out for an evening without her since she was born.

In fact this week I'm going out for the first time and i'm really nervous about it. I know I won't be able to relax but it's important for me to get back in the saddle.
