Re: what age did you leave child overnight?

I need an "other" box.

DD newest has never been left - she is 11 months
DD almost 2 - never DH stayed when I had her sister.
DS3 - spent the night once at my parents (his choice), as a newb when I had surgery
DS1 and DS2 - left for birth of DS3 with my mom (they were 6 and 7), left for two surgeries, they've spent the night at my parents house several times, we left them twice for the weekend starting at about age 5 (both times work related.)

In ten years we've left our kids twice - just the older ones once they were about 5 and both times for work related events. BUT the older ones leave us all the time ODSs have been to summer camp, friends houses, grandparents etc.

Right after her 2nd birthday when her sister was born. I was gone for 5 nights at the hospital (traumatic c/s followed by a NICU stay). We haven't spent a night apart since then.

I have never spent a night away from YDD. She's almost 1.
April + Stephen = Eva, Reese, and Baby 3.0 (due Nov '14)

My son is 4.5 and we've never left him. If we lived near my parents I probably would have let him stay there by now but we don't and I don't trust anyone else for an overnight.
