Some babies demand their mamas more than others. Just a personality thing, or maybe a circumstances led for the bond to be exclusive. In that case, it might be bad idea to leave for a weekend.
But, in other cases, babies have a very healthy bond with both parents, or multiple caregivers (grandparents, babysitters, etc.), and don't cry at drop offs, and are happy to spend the time with those that watch them on a regular basis.
Either way, sounds like in OP's case the baby is more than okay, and it's great that OP trusts her husband and does not minimize his role in child rearing. It also sounds like dad is willing and no less able to parent. Which is a whole another level of great.
Enjoy the weekend. Dads are no less capable than moms, at least in our case. DSD spent early morning through 4-5pm with her dad from 3 months onward. She was daddy's girl until very recently through and through.
What babies need is love and security, and moms are not the only parents able to provide that, in some families. It's something to be celebrated for that family unit. It takes a village, and the whole bit...
By the way, I don't think historically mothers were exclusive caregivers. I think they heavily depended on other women in the community, once the baby started crawling and willing to explore the world, even more so, yk?
