I personally never would have thought to say no if dh wanted to take ds out...he is also ds's parent and can comfort him in other ways. I don't remember when the first time really alone was, but he has been home with him a few hours every morning before daycare (I work full time out of the home and dh is a free-lance artist)...so he's alaways had alone time with him. I think it's very healthy to foster that relationship between dh and dc and to let them figure things out. I found that dh wanted to spend more and more time with ds as he got aolder (and I'm talking like 10 months older!)....I think he felt more comfortable with him once ds was able to do more.
