Maybe I'm being pfb but I don't really even fancy going for a night out with friends yet, I'm perfectly happy at home with DD and DP watching films or good tv of an evening. I like to go out socialising during day, for lunches and what not but don't feel I want to leave my DD yet. For one and I'm not joking, my DP can't get her to sleep of an evening and secondly I'm too bleeding tired!!

YANBU in not wanting to go out. I would make sure that dp learns how to get her to sleep though.

I think YABitU. Your DP needs to develop confidence to put your DD to bed. Short term it's nice for you to feel needed. Long term, probably not so great

Well your DP will need to learn!

Of course you don't need to go if you don't want to, but don't make 'leaving your baby' into something bigger than it needs to be. It's normal and it's good for you to see your friends.

If you dont want to go out, dont go out. Baby or not. But it will be very beneficial to you not to be the only person able to see dd off to sleep.

If you fancy, have friends round for drinks one night.

YANBU, I think it took me a year to get round to going out in the evening after dd was born - I was too tired,it just didn't appeal! And until she was 2 or so, I was the only one who could get her to sleep. It's hardly ruined my life grin so for now I'd say take it easy and if you don't want to go, don't - change the way you do things only when you want to, not because you've been told you should.
