  • Viruses, too many germs, breezy weather. All not good for a 1 week old.

  • If it is a pro game there are always fights.. beers flying..people screaming with every play.. there is a district justice there to set bails because of so many fights. I wouldn't take my kid there until they were wayyyyy older.

  • No infant should be out around the public at one week old for many reasons!
    People and children carry tons of germs that a new born should not be exposed to.
    Infants are to little to be exposed to the sun for that long... even with jaundice.
    It's to LOUD for a infant at a football game, people can get crazy and it's not very safe for a baby.
    Who would even think about taking a new born baby to a football game? sorry...but that's just not smart parenting.

  • way would I do that. I didnt keep my son locked up when he was born either. We went to the grocery store, out to eat all right around a week old but I would be concerned about:
    1. the NOISE!...way too loud for brand new ears
    2. The heat
    3. People around you acting wild
    4. Germs son is 13 months and we still dont take him to the hometown race track here when we go because it is just not safe and he would not have a good time.
