    We don’t have any kids but one of my best friends did when she was married and she still went on a Honeymoon to Jamaica. Their daughter was a little over 1 when they were married. Their Honeymoon started out as being a 4 day/3 night but a hurricane hit when they were there which caused them to have to stay for an extra 3 days (what a debacle that was). Her parents watched their daughter when they were away. Having to stay longer really screwed them (and her parents) but their original Honeymoon plans weren’t really that big of a deal. Most people were surprised they took a Honeymoon because they’re broke, not because they had a kid.

    We took one and had 3 children (conceived our 4th on our honeymoon).  We were so thankful to our parents and siblilngs for watching them.  We live close to a major tourist attraction and that’s where we honeymooned, so we were close to home in case of an emergency!

    My cousin just got engaged, she has a 5 year old son that will be staying with family while her and her husband take their honeymoon.

    My nephew will be staying with my parents when my sister and her new husband take their honeymoon this summer.  They’re going to Italy right after the wedding for about 2 weeks.

    There is nothing wrong with wanting to take a honeymoon after your marriage if you have a child. You are no less deserving of that time together than a couple without children. Is there really nobody in your family willing to take your child for at least a few days after the wedding so you can get away? You may not have the luxury of taking a longer more expensive honeymoon because you have a child, but you should be able to do something.

    And nobody will watch him on your wedding night either? Jeez! Have you asked?

    We going in May, we have no human kids, just the furry kind that people will be able to look after…

    One thing- glad I didn’t go right after the wedding, I had (and still have) a brutal cold and it was just too busy.

    Have you thought about taking your son with you? Maybe go to Disney or something so it can be a family vacation. Or maybe a cruise that provides childcare so you get some alone time? Obviously it would be great if you guys could get away on your own, but I’d much prefer to take a family vacation than not get away at all.  Alternatively, maybe you can offer your dad some financial assistance for him to come watch your son so you guys can get away, even if that means you can take a less expensive Honeymoon, i think it would be worth it. Shame on your family for not offering to take your son on the wedding night, though!
