Hello ladies, I have a question about how soon after baby is born can you take baby outside into the world? Hubby and I are going through our first IVF cycle and if all works out we will have a baby around Sept-Oct. For thanksgiving it is a family tradition on my side of the family for my immediate family to stay in b&b. Would any of you ladies recommend doing this since the baby will only be either a month or two old? Thought PLEASE!!!

It will be fine. Just make sure you keep sickies away from baby. Have everyone wash their hands before holding. Good luck! My brother and sil had ivf and now has a beautiful 7 month old little girl.

Oh yes I already have the biggest bottle of germ-x just waiting :) Thank you so much we are very excited and nervous about this process. It has been a long time trying and really hope this will be the answer to our prayers!!! Congrats to your brother and sil on their precious little girl!

I never stayed in for a certain time with any of my kids. I've even gone to the store directly after leaving hospital with 2 of them. I never had an issue with them getting sick, not till they were a little older.

My first two only after about 6 weeks. With my last baby he did not hit the air until about 4 mo! He was a September baby and I really had no reason to take him out, only to doctor and back!
