  • Ya just make sure she is dressed for the weather. I did at one week and my baby is fine.

  • Absolutely! Why wouldn't you be able to? Just be sure to protect their skin from the sun, it is very fragile right now.

  • Sure, why couldn't you? Just make sure the little one is dressed for the weather and bundled up if its chilly. If it is cooler just try and keep the cool air from blowing on her and keep her ears covered up. Just because you have a baby doesn't mean you're confined to the house and can't still live :-)

  • Ha, I took my newborn to the grocery store on the way home from the hospital..30 years ago....! Yes a walk with some fresh air will do you both a world of good. Keep her skin protected as mentioned and the wind off her face, as also mentioned.

  • We stopped at walmart on the way home from the hospital and like every other day I was taking my baby to outings to walmart and the mall to get out! It is a necessity for you when they are this young. Just make sure you don't let anyone get too close as it is easy for them to get sick this little...

  • Sure you can!! Just dress for the weather and make sure she's strapped in properly and comfortable!! My 3rd child was 2weeks old when we went to the Twin Cities and shopped in the Mall of America and then had a wedding to attend and what not!

  • Oh yea. Just make sure you dress him appropriate for the weather. My son, since he was born, has loved to go outside. It's the only thing to shut him up when he has a tantrum.
