Once baby comes along, dinners out can be challenging. Babies are unpredictable and haven’t learned self-control, so it’s up to you, the parents, to prepare yourselves for an enjoyable evening out. You and all the child-free people around you will appreciate your date night if you follow a few tips.
Forget spontaneity. If you expect baby to be seen and not heard, plan the dinner date around baby’s schedule. Don’t go during her typical “fussy period.” A well-fed baby with a fresh diaper is more likely to be content or sleep quietly in her infant carrier.
