Wow, I'm really surprised by some of the replies! Six months, 9 months, or longer before leaving a child even with his father?
I feel concerned when I read other threads by mamas saying they can't ever leave their kids with the dad because the kids cry.
The original question for this post was simply when you first physically separated from your baby. The issue here is not if someone feels or does not feel comfortable leaving their baby with the father. It is simply at what age did you feel comfortable leaving your baby. I was just curious to see how it might be different for more alternative mothers as opposed to more mainstream mothers.
I didn't put it here for us to judge eachother. Just simply to conduct a kind of survey I suppose. I don't "feel concerned" when reading your post, so please don't feel concerned while reading mine and the others. This is for curious minds and informational purposes only. I want everyone to feel comfortable responding, whether they first left their child at a day old, or the child is five and they still haven't left it.
