  • all three of mine were out with me days after birth.

    #2 was a day old and I had to stop at the store and stuff on the way home from hospital.

  • We went out with my son the very next day for pictures and then at a week old to the mall....he never got sick or anything. I plan on doing pretty much the same with my baby due next month.

  • My baby will be born on november, and usually that is flue season in my place, so I am not planning to get him out until at least 40 days....

  • I took mine out 3-4 weeks after but it was only that long because I was recovering from a c-section. I think you just need to be reasonable about where you take your LO and wash your hands a lot!

  • I waited a month with both...Well not really I had to take them to the dr. like when they were 2 wks old I think. But no where else! Just there and back.
