I just want to know what “letting loose” during DINNER means? Because apparently OP doesn’t care what happens after dinner (presumably dancing, when letting loose seems to matter); but wants sister to be able to let loose during…speeches? Is she expecting her to be shit faced while eating..? I’m so confused.

I agree, the title of this post is super intense. First of all its your sister. The baby is your niece or nephew. I’m sorry, but I’d think you’d have some empathy especially because they are your family. You “compromised” your no baby rule for your sister and her three month old? Wow. Really? If my sister demanded and said or even just had this attitude of “no baby at my F-ING table” you’d be damn sure i’d tell you I would not be sitting at your “F-ing” table either. 

That said, I was my cousins bridesmaid and at her wedding I had my 3 month old there. i had my husband and parent watch her while I was able to do my bridesmaid duties and still had time to be with her between those duties. But at the reception my baby sat with me the whole time.  Babies at that age don’t do much besides eat and sleep. They don’t make much noise either, unless they cry. But if the baby is being fed and cared for, they don’t normally cry. My baby didn’t cry once through the entire 12 hr day. if you’re concerned the baby would be a distraction from you on your big day, ill tell you that that baby will more than likely just sleep in their carrier and everyone doesn’t care and goes about their time partying.

Out of line.  One of my BMs has two kids (who were flower girl and page boy at our wedding) and she mentioned to me that they may want to come and sit on her knee at some point during the reception and she hoped that wasn’t going to be a problem – and I said of course it wasn’t.  I’d much rather have a happy kid sitting on her knee at the head table rather than a screaming two year old trying to get to mum and being stopped.  As it happened, neither of them tried (I provided colouring books and they were happy sitting with dad and two other friends who are “aunties” to the kids) but I wouldn’t have cared if they had.  At three months old, your nephew is going to eat and slee, nothing more, and won’t cause a problem at the head table. But if you really don’t want him there, sweetheart table is the answer.

I think OP is afraid the baby and sister will steal her thunder.
