best advice to raiding parents, especially of younger children, try to find a guild of parents that raid in your suppossed downtime. A guild of like-minded people understand when you have to afk for 10 minutes to give the baby a bottle at nighttime. It was the best move I ever made!

Agreed. To be a parent and raid - raid with other parents. That's what we do. We have three parents in this household, and three kids, and the parents all raid together. Takes some juggling. We always try to plan things ahead, get them fed before raid starts if we can, use a scheduled AFK to take care of their needs, but the group understands if we have a sudden kid emergency - and we understand when they do.

I completely agree. My husband and I are in a casual 10 man raiding guild. We have a toddler, and we would never be able to do all of it if our guildies didn't have kids of their own.

Also, if you just can't find a parent-friendly guild on your server that runs at good times for you, consider a server in another time zone, where "prime raid time" coincides with your downtime.
