Parents Spark Debate After Leaving Their Baby Sleeping in Hotel Room While Dining at Restaurant

Would you leave your baby in a hotel room sleeping while you went downstairs to eat at a restaurant?

A writer who goes by the name of Frequent Crier wrote a blog post in the UK Telegraph about doing just that, asking readers: “Was I wrong to leave my baby sleeping alone in a hotel room while I ate dinner downstairs?”

The woman, her husband and 11-month-old baby visited friends one weekend, and decided to check into a hotel. As the woman was “new to motherhood” and found the first few months of having a baby exhausting, she wrote that she missed her freedom and “the ease with which I wined, dined and speed-dialed an Uber home without a second thought.”

So she was super excited to tuck her baby into a “deep-sided travel cot”, turn on a video monitor, and spend a Friday night with friends at the hotel restaurant downstairs.
