  • not until they had all; their shots at 6 weeks old. Before that their immune system is not 100%!

  • So many people came to our house it was just as good as public they were both out with in the week and turned out fine. Its not like they were touching any thing or chewing on shopping cart handles- thats when I got nervous!

  • we had to go to the drugstore for meds for me after his two day checkup, and after his appointment, he slept through the rest of the trip. we've been taking him out basically since day one, and he does really well outside of the house :)

  • Within days - 3 of my 4 had to go to the hospital every 1-2 days for bili checks, and since it was 20 miles each way to the hospital (different town) and it would have been really really stupid to send DH to the store later, I stopped at the store on my way home if I needed something. I kept a blanket draped loosely over the carseat handle or wore baby to keep strangers from getting too close.
