For how long can I leave my baby alone?

A good rule of thumb is 10 to 15 minutes between quick check-ins. Make sure you have a baby monitor or can hear the baby while you take a break (whether you take a break in order to grab a quick shower, take an important phone call, or just to clear your head). Crying cannot hurt your baby, in fact, some babies develop better skills at soothing themselves when they are given the space alone to practice self-soothing.
