Ugh my stomach turns thinking about this. A mom in the UK is under fire after admitting that she left her baby alone for 7 minutes because she had to run to the store.
While chances are very slim that anything would ever happen to the baby, I could never do it. I would torture myself with What if’s…it’s just not worth it. I mean yes, I would go take a shower (and always thought I was hearing baby cry…even when they were sound asleep), or I’d clean the house or *maybe* sit outside…but I always either had a monitor or checked on them often. To be completely honest 99% of the time when my kids were babies and they were sleeping, I’d nap on the couch. 😉
