...for me that is. I have a 2 month old baby boy and I have several upcoming weddings. I know the etiquette is to not bring the baby (but I don't see why not since they don't eat or need a seat, other than the fact that they could potentially cry the entire time) so that leaves me and DH needing a babysitter. The babysitter part isn't a problem since my MIL has offered her services. However the thought of leaving my baby gives me anxiety. I know sooner or later I'll have to do things where I'll need someone else to watch my baby, but I don't think I'm ready to leave him for going to our friends' weddings. I'm just worried that he'll cry and cry and my in laws won't know what to do. Another part of it is that I think my MIL has forgotten what it's like to be a mom. What I mean by that is that I'm not sure she'll know all the ways to soothe my baby. It's easy for me since I'm breastfeeding whenever he cries (uncontrollably), I just pop him on the boob. But my MIL won't have that luxury should he cry while I'm away. My in laws come over to see the baby several times a week, but I'm around and my DH is around so should our baby fuss, we can take over. What I really need is some advice either to just not go to go or any words or wisdom.
