    I completely disagree with this article. Infants have no reliable sense of time and a mother away from her baby overnight is creating a baby who thinks that he has been abandoned by her. While I agree that mothers may need some time away from baby, an overnight trip is irresponsible parenting. Much better to get away for a few hours, incorporating baby’s naptime, and keep the trust intact in the relationship.

      @Lavaida: Of course, what’s right for every mother and every family is different. Thanks for sharing your side!

    @Lavaida: Maybe you have never experienced a night away, but they are actually very refreshing. My children have people in their lives that they can trust and dont think they are “abandoned” lol. If anything my children feel comfortable and when I return are happy, and my kids are breastfed! I gave my children a bottle a day of pumped milk so its no shock to them. Maybe you were expected to do it all, and maybe that is why your so stern on your beliefs that a mother should be without a full nights rest for years at a time… whatever makes you feel better, but I agree with this blog.
