Not in this DDC, but hugs to you. I've had an evening out wrecked too when DD was tiny and was so pissed off about it. She was under three months old, and I was not allowed to stay at my friends place beacuse she had organised an evening with a lady coming with mature material(you know the Tupperware style party, but with sex toys...).
Neither her and I had thought about it... My friend herself had to put her own baby to sleep really fast and close the bedroom door !
I mean DD could not have cared less, she was either nursing or sleeping in the sling and man, could my dead postpartum libido have used that evening
The thing about those thing is that a lot of people don't seem to get that BF'd infant want milk so often that they need Mom at ALL times. It is not like you actually CAN leave them anywhere else, unlike my 2 years old.
