Beyonce & Jay Z went out on their first date without baby just six weeks after she arrived.

We just went out to dinner for anniversary when Nathan was 11 weeks. My parents watched him for us. But we're both working so we're away from him a lot.

We have had three date nights...the first when Maddie was 4 weeks old. We are only gone 2-3 hours but we need this time for our relationship. There is rarely a free moment in our house with two busy older kids and a new baby :)

We have no family around so we have not been out without Isaac. We would love to have a date but there's no one to leave him with!

My DH and I both work so Noelle has been going to a sitter since about 8 weeks. However we have not gone out just one another yet. I think because we work we feel (as of right now) that we want to spend our time off with her since we work outside the home.

She was almost two weeks old when I went out with DH and a few friends for a couple of hours on New Years.

My husband and I have to yet to go on a post-baby date yet, but we do both work full time, so I started getting Dillon ready for that by leaving him with my parents a few hours at a time when he was about 8 weeks old. I went back full time when he was 10 weeks and he stays with my parents during the day.
