It depends on how much you know and trust the person, and what experience they have. I left my daughter with my parents very early on, and also with a friend who works with infants, so I knew she was trustworthy. The first time I left her with someone with less experience was when she was over a year. However, when I was in high school, I babysat for some little babies.

The first time we left our daughter alone with my parents (my sitter) was when she was a few months old. It was harder on my wife than on her.
