Newborn baby, who can babysit?

In laws want “alone time” with my newborn once a week, for at least 4 hours. Husband wants to do it too, says we can go on a date during that time. 

She’s 8 weeks old and exclusively breastfed. So I would have to pump 1-2 bottles for them to use.

Is this reasonable request from them? Or normal compared to other family’s? First time mum here and not sure how to feel.. I feel weird leaving my baby so young. It could be hormones but it feels like they’re trying to take over her. :(

    Go with your gut. You say you feel weird about it so simply tell them you're not yet comfortable with doing that.
