“When my daughter was young, spending a night away would have been more stressful than relaxing,” said fellow Mommyish.com blogger Lindsay Cross.
Another blogger went as far to call Eckler “self-indulgent.” They posted that “if you need a weekend away after only 10 weeks, you weren’t ready to become parents.”
Although this is Eckler’s second child she did admit that the first time she left her oldest was tough.
“I spent my night looking at photographs of her, calling my parents every 30 minutes to see if she was all right,” she said. “But I was a first-time mother then.”
“Nine months of pregnancy is a very long time and is very hard on a woman’s body,” she said. “Pretty much by two weeks, in I think most women actually do need a vacation.”
