In brief: Sure

Any time with your child is extraordinarily valuable.
That age sees wonderful advances in development and awareness of the world around them. Do it!

In brief: Parent survival

This is a good time to think about parent survival.
A baby means long hours without rest, extra chores, and constant anxiety. It makes a good sense to plan weekly time off away from the baby. Parents need time to be a couple away from the moment to moment stress of doing everything for baby.
