Spin off here.
When do you begin bringing your babies out of the house?
When do you bring them to social places?(play group, church, get togethers)
Aside from bf what other things do you do to help boost there immune system? And when do you start doing them?

I think I took my first out at about two weeks to a friend's house, first public playdate maybe a week later, shopping even sooner. I dont know, I don't worry. She is breast fed and I wear her when we go out, those are the best things for her immune system right now.

Oh, and later when we go to gross places like an airport, or if there's an outbreak or something, my girls get mangos, sunshine, and I spray their feet with a baby safe thieves oil.

Why mangos? My kids love mangos! I buy them frozen cause I suck at picking good fresh ones, are frozen still good?

I bf and I started right away. My car seat has a canopy the covers the whole thing so if I bring her in in her seat, whichbivdo if she's sleeping happily in it) I close it so nobody will try to touch her. Otherwise I wear her and that prevents strangers from touching her too.

Mangos are loaded with vitamins A and C. Fresh is always best, but there's nothing wrong with frozen, that's better than none at all!!

PS I didn't know you were here! Sweet!!

Ok thanks.
I start taking my kids out from birth. I bf and baby wear. We go to church 2xs a week and a play group for the older kiddos once a week. Just wanted to make sure I wasnt missing anything. We dont leave her in the nursery at church yet. There will be 4 toddlers (1 being my own) and 4 infants with my baby the oldest. When would be an ok time to leave her. My biggest concern is that they'll change a baby whose shedding the rotavirus and pass it to my baby. Is that an unreasonable concern?

have you inspected where the diaper changing station is, and how changes are handled?  Do people wear gloves when changing diapers?  How are the diapers disposed of?  Are they wrapped up? what about the toddlers shedding their pertussis, mmr and chicken pox vaccines?  A lot of those are shed thru coughing, sneezing and saliva.
