When would be LO's first outing???
I'm due in 15 days, and we're going to a wedding 5 hours away in mid-September. That'll be the first "big" trip with LO.
I'm sure he'll leave the house before then, but he'll be around 2 months old for our first big trip.
The pediatricians office for his check-up. We don't really go anywhere other than that for the first month, not even the grocery store or Target.
DH may take him for a walk around the block or something, but that's about it.
I will take her to my mom's house and DH's parents houses fairly quickly (like after the 1st week), but I wont take her to restaurants/malls/the food store etc till 6 weeks or so.
I plan to take her for walks as soon as I physically can.
I'm not sure. My brother is getting married 12 days after my scheduled induction & he doesn't understand why I keep saying that we might not make it. I think that's way too soon for the baby to be around so many people, and probably too soon for me to want to go anywhere, but I guess if we feel up to it we might make an appearance. At least it's a local wedding!
Other than that I think we'll be homebodies for a while. I'm kind of terrified of taking LO around a bunch of people before his first shots.
kamirae:i should add though that the first away trip will be labor day weekend to my parents boat 5.5 hrs away.
This. Can't wait for the rest of my family to meet LO. We are excited. As long as the pediatrician says its ok, we will be making trips home at least Once a month.
We'll be bringing LO out on the boat probably sometime in the first week or two. Our parents did it with us when we were born and me and DH are just fine. He'll have plenty of shade, sunscreen, and flotation devices.
I'm sure we'll also be out to eat and grocery shopping that first week. I have no problem with the idea of bringing him around people right away, just as long as everyone keeps their hands to themselves.
Either her first check up or on a walk around the neighborhood. I can't wait to be active since being on bedrest for so long.
We are going away for 3-4 nights to the San Juan Islands when she is about 2 weeks old. That will be her first big getaway.
