Leaving our baby for the first time

I am worried about our imminent travel with our 6 month old baby, my husband has brought a weekend hotel stay for us to have some quality time, although we have one of your skilled nannies for the evening we are leaving our little girl for the first time. I can’t help but feel nervous.

Rest assured, your apprehension around this is quite normal and of course leaving your little one for the first time is already a daunting task. However, this is the most nurtured way you can experience your first evening out with your husband and leaving your daughter with one of our nannies. Remember, the restaurant is not very far from your room so if you feel you need to return you can, your baby is just a stones through away. Also your allocated nanny will text you how your baby is doing and I can tell you now, those little texts don’t sound like much but on the evening, you will feel pure happiness when you get the little up-dates come through from your nanny. It will leave you absolutely at ease to kick back for that little while longer and enjoy the time and companionship of your partner, as husband and wife again! I know those first 6 months can be especially challenging and I know from what you have said this is the first time you are giving each other your undivided attention since having your little one. Trust me, you will feel a million dollars after a fabulous evening in the fine dining restaurant with great food, wines and a velvety atmosphere of good lighting and music to really bring back the romance that over the past 6 months has been a little harder to enjoy!
