Plus they pretty much sleep anywere, and we don't co-sleep. Ok you can all shoot me now.
|Even if somehow I knew my 1 year old would be OK without me for a week and that my parents would be OK with the situation, I could not bear to be without my child for a week. I could not be without my 3.75 year old for a week. I would not want to be without my dh for a week.
No way. Not in a trillion years.

Of course I would go nuts, but I think that my parents love DS so much, and it makes me sad that they do not get to spend more time with him.
But, I would go with them if at all possible. The only way I would send him with them by himself is if there was no way DH or I could go too.
|So if he was only a year old, he would've met your parents only once. How do you think HE would feel, not you, not your parents, but a 1 yr old baby, about SUDDENLY being without his mama, and left in the care of people who are strangers TO HIM. The fact that they are thousands of miles away and would've only seen him once makes it seem harsher to me, than with grandparents who a child sees often enough to "know" them somewhat.
I voted no! I think 1 yrs old is way to young to be taken away from home and parents. If the family lives with the grandparents, I can see the parents going away, since the baby would still be in the familiar place with familiar people, but being sent away from home and parents at such a young age, would be cruelty to a baby, imo, regardless of how much the parents trusted the grandparents.
