This weekend we are leaving Henry overnight for the first time and despite the title of these series, I’m not completely confident that it is ok.
I’ve spoken about the importance of date night here , but on the one date we’ve been on, we were home pretty early, armed and ready to comfort or feed as demanded through the night. What I’m feeling incredibly guilty about is that he’ll wake up in the night looking for me and I won’t be there.
His Nanan will be coming to stay over so he’s in his own environment, which makes me feel a little better as she’s put him to bed before. As a child I enjoyed staying with my grandparents, and I want Henry to feel the same so I know we need to start somewhere. I imagine the first time is always the worst.
I’ll report back on Monday with how it went…
How did you feel about leaving your little overnight for the first time?
