  • Mine were born in December and January, so aside from doctor's appointments, I didn't take them out and about until they were about 3-4 months old!

  • 2-3 days with each child. With my youngest we actually stopped for lunch on the way home from the hospital, went to the grocery store and then went to get the older kids from school.

  • Mine are all summer babies. I had my first out within the first two weeks. It was between 2 and 3 weeks before I ventured out with the twins, and that was mainly because it was such an overwhelming task to go anywhere with them at first.
