  1. I felt funny. Like there was something missing. But I enjoy child-free moments now.

  2. I can definitely relate to this. I love having a couple of hours off but manage to miss them when I’m there x

    I’ve not been away from my little one overnight, but I’ve done a whole day here or there when at a work event or when doing a proper big shopping day. I always miss her! xo

      I’ve not done overnight either. The grandparents keep asking for a sleepover but he’s only 16 months so it’s not like he’s going to be having fun with friends before sleeping hahahha. I suspect I’ll change my mind when number 2 arrives

  4. Mine went away for 48hrs at 9mths! She was refusing to take a bottle and I was absolutely exhausted from breastfeeding her all night for 2 weeks. Literally to the point where I could barely speak. My Mother in Law took her for the weekend and I slept pretty much for the whole first day. When she came back she was happy to take a bottle from me and things settled down. I don’t recommend going cold turkey like that though as I got mastitis. With my second I cut down gradually at about the same age which was much better but she allowed me to do it by accepting a bottle

    • The Growing Mum says:

      Oh my gosh. I’m glad it worked though and I bet that sleep was amazing. We just about survived the 9 month sleep and feeding regression but called it quits at 13 months as I got pregnant and couldn’t carry on

  5. Ah, what a shame your night was cut short, but know what you mean about being secretly pleased that you could get home to baby! By the way, how on earth did you manage to apply make up while walking? haha

    • The Growing Mum says:

      It was tricky to say the least. Foundation and lippy I could do without stopping but had to pause for the mascara hahaha

  6. I am not a parent so can only begin to imagine. However, i love the message exchange between you too made me chuckle x

    Awww bless you, hope next time you manage more than 3 hours child free hours

  8. Scandi Mummy says:

    In February I’ll get to spend my first night away from my boy. He’ll be 3 then. It’s equal measure excitement and dread. I often spend the few hours child-free I get a week working very hard. x

  9. BattleMum says:

    Apart from work I didn’t get time away from my son until last year, aged two and a half. It felt strange but great to be able to relax and have uninterrupted sleep and adult conversation!

  10. Jenni says:

    I got away for a weekend once a year on my own, since my eldest was 1. It’s great for recharging my batteries.
