First Date Night 😘,First BabySitter 😖

My husband wants to go out and spend more time with me since we had the baby. It’s been 5 months now and he recommended hiring a sitter. The first thought in my head is “NO”. But please just hear me out 🍼😖 .. I love my baby so much and it scares me to leave him with someone else. The people he recommended to watch our son are people we kind of gotten to know and the husband works with my husband for awhile now. I’m nervous, what was it like for you when you first hired a sitter? Was it a stranger or someone you know? Did you really enjoy yourself while you were out or was the baby in the back of your mind a lot? >>comment below<<

Well my life is a little different this time around. My older 3 are 24. 21. 16 with them my mom his mom and my grandma watched them. I did end up hiring 1 babysitter for nights out. I called her refrences made sure she had CPR and 1st aid training and had her watch them the 1st time at a bday party we went to so I was there to watch and so the kids could get to know her a little with the security of me being there. I now have a 4 mos old lol yes I'm a little crazy. My mom has passed. His mom has heath issues and my grandparents are to old. Now I have my older kids lol that is the only ones he has been with and I have a monitor to check in but it stresses me put if he's crying so I try to only do a few times. He's def on my mind and the topic of conversation. Its hard but we gotta keep our selfs and our relationship healthy to be our best for our kids. It will get easier the older the child gets 💗

We did not hire a stranger. Thankfully we have my mom that can cover date nights. But we could not stop talking about him during our date 🙈

We had date nights at home when LO fell asleep. We made sure he had an early bed time. I know that wasn’t much help but mama instincts were too strong! Do what your gut tells you!

Lol I love that idea! You know I would like to try something like that with my husband actually I’ll do it this weekend and let you know how it goes! Definitely, I did go out and have a good time. My sitter was nice to share pictures of our son playing and sleeping. It still does not make me feel 100 percent comfortable! But that’s definitely mama bear instincts xD

I don’t / won’t leave baby with anyone until we have a schedule 5/6 mo old. I like to know what to tell people so they aren’t guessing as to why they are crying. I do eventually leave at first for an hour but we build up to longer times out.

I’m not gonna lie it was hard leaving my little girl with my own family when my husband an d I went out. But it was a nice get away as well. Got to reconnect with him and we had a lot of fun. (Even tho I was checking my phone every 2 seconds)
