How can we celebrate our wedding anniversary with a newborn?

By

My husband and I have 2 boys (2 and 5) and a newborn baby girl. Our anniversary is this weekend and we have a baby sitter for the boys, but we aren’t ready to leave the baby with a sitter yet. Any ideas of baby friendly places to go or things to do.

please let me know if you find the answer to this one because I’m 7 months pregnant and not long after my due date is our wedding anniversary and idk what to do! Like you, I know I could never leave my baby with anyone when he is that young, not even for an hour!

*edit*
oh, looks like you got some good responses above:
get a hotel room with a hot tub or go out to a nice dinner, just plan the evening around her sleep schedule (which would really only work if she’s more than a few weeks old, because she needs to be old enough to have a sleep schedule! lol)
well, good luck, I’ll be checking back to see if you got any good answers cause, like I said, I’m gonna be going through the same thing here soon enough and like you, idk what to do!

    Well, if you got the baby you may as well have the other 2 as well huh? Lol! Go out to a nice restaurant with the little ones. Celebrate with the whole family. After all that you still have your special time together when you two are alone. Good Luck and Happy Anniversary.

    Find a hotel with a pool or hottub in the room or right outside. So you can take a monitor and go have some sort of adult fun in an environment away from home.

    well if your going to have the house just you hubby and baby, why not make a candle lit dinner for 2 some soft music, that way you can dance and enjoy each other and still be able to tend to your baby as needed?

    that’s what my mom and dad did when my sister was born.

    you should get a sitter for about 2 hours,eat at a nice restaurant,go home and watch a good movie together.It’s hard when you have small kids,but you’ll appreciate a nice meal out .

    Since baby is so young she will probably sleep through just about anything you do. I am sure you can get through a nice dinner and take her with you. I have seen people take their very young babies with them to a nice restaurant and it is no problem. They just put the baby carrier on one of the high chairs and it sleeps through it all. You know her schedule, so you can time your outing. Happy anniversary!

    I never took my newborn child out in public until after their first well baby check up. Ask Grandma to watch the newborn separately and just go out to dinner, 2 hours is not going to matter to your newborn.

    I can understand your worry but its your wedding anniversary – that should be celebrated with just the two of you – not any of the kids/baby.

    IMO I think you should just postpone celebrating it till the baby is older and you feel better leaving her overnight with a trusted babysitter.

    Can either of your parents watch the baby overnight?
