  • my daughter was also about 1 month old..there were minor complications when she was born (she had a hole in her lung, pnemonia and group b strep infection), so we were stuck in the hospital for 8 days, and then when we went home, they recommended me not taking her out anywhere for a few weeks..

  • We had family and friends over ever single day since the day my son was born, for 3 weeks straight. However no one came over that was sick or anything like that...I didn't exactly want things to be that way but my fiance and I didn't have the guts to tell everyone no. However we didn't take him in a public place, except for the doctor, until he was 3 1/2 months old.

  • Our first was born in the middle of winter so we didn't take him anywhere but the doctor until he was 3 months old. We had friends and relatives wanting us to go out to breakfast and shopping when he was one week old. I wasn't even moving that well, had a 4th degree tear. I wasn't up to running around and I sure was not going to take my newborn out just so everyone could show him off. We started to get out more with him when the weather warmed up. Our second was born right before summer started but we still didn't go all over until she was a few months old.
