How often do you go out with LO?

To do errands, for walks etc?  Do you go out every day?

I've been taking DS out for 30-min walks almost daily since we came home from the hospital.  It's more for my sanity though...

Re: How often do you go out with LO?

  • I try to avoid going to stores with him just because his carseat is as big as me lol. But if I have to I hit every where I need to go in one day and try to make it in less than 3 hours. But we go on a walk probably twice a day. He gets really fussy during the afternoon and the K'tan puts him to sleep so I do that when nothing else works.

  • If it's nice out, everyday. My 2 yr old has to blow off steam. We bought him a playset for the backyard, so we take him outside as much as possible.

  • Unless there is a snowstorm and the roads are unsafe, I go out every single day for the sake of my own sanity. I wish I lived in a warm climate so I could get out with her (I live in northern Canada) in the stroller in the daylight instead of the mall but every outing helps.

  • I have older kids too, so we are out of the house daily and have been since the first week. We take my older kids to preschool, playgroup, ballet, go shopping, etc. When the weather was warmer, we walked outside too, but it's too cold now. I would go insane if we didn't leave the house at least once a day...

  • We go out for errands almost daily because I need to get out and there really isn't a good place for us to walk.   We also go out to lunch a couple times a week either with my mother or DH.

  • I take her to work with me 2-3 days a week, and then I take her to my Aunt's on Thursdays so I can actually get something done at work.  We don't really have good sidewalks/roads to take a stroller on, but I've taken her out in the carrier a few times.  She used to hate getting put in the car seat, but has pretty much gotten over it.

  • We go out every day! It's mainly for my dogs sainty to be honest. I have to walk/hike my 2 dogs daily or else they go skitzo. But I do have a limited time frame, since my daylight hours are very limited. So far it gets light around 10am and dark around 3:30pm!! Alaskan winters can be brutal! Seems weird that I have to put reflector stuff on my stroller if I want to take out my LO.
  • 2 to 3 times a weeks. We went to breakfast on Tuesday and am going to lunch with friends tomorrow. Once flu and RSV season is over we'll go out more.

    I can't imagine this!  Winter makes me sleepy as it is, but being dark that much would drive me crazy!

  • I go out everyday. I have a 4 yr old and staying inside would drive us all nuts.

  • I walk the dog wearing her on nice days. Otherwise we only take her out once or twice a week. It stresses me out to have her breakdown in public and I figure it is a FTM luxury.

  • Never. :( Too scared to take twins out by myself.

  • If the weather permits, we go for a walk everyday. It is getting colder (I'm in MN), so that won't continue soon. Otherwise we go to storytime at the library twice a week for my daughter and run errands at least once a week. On the weekends we tend to get out at least once. So, I'd say we average 5-6 days a week without the daily walks that may or may not happen :)

  • Well between choir practice, visiting my parents and fi's parents and running errands and visiting with my friends we go out pretty often. LO loves it! He loves all the christmas lights they are putting up now. Too cold in Wisconsin to be going out walking. We go mall walking though lol! It's nice to get outta the house.

  • I take him out everyday to the store and my moms house, in hopes of me shedding some weight and fresh air for both of us.

    This, except we're not out daily. Not because I don't want to, but the hassle of getting both kids ready, timing it between feeding sessions, mealtimes and potty breaks is overwhelming at times. I'd say we go out at least 3-4x a week

     This exactly.  My LO is getting better, but is still very unpredictable.  I never know when she is going to have a HUGE screamfest and it makes me anxious to even think about that happening in a store or restaurant.  Hopefully, things will get better soon - she just turned 6 weeks and i've already seen improvement.

  • Every day, or else I'd go stir crazy. I just time it so we leave 20 min-1 hour after he eats, and he almost always falls asleep in the stroller/carrier.

  • I have to go out every day Mon-Fri to take DS to school and pick him up, but we don't have to get out of the car for that.  It is a 20 min drive each way though, which sucks.  He also has after-school activities on Tues and Wed.  I try to run an errand after dropping DS off if we need to go shopping or anything, but we usually only go one place.  I nurse before we leave for school, even if it's close to the time she last nursed so that she'll last longer while we're out.  So far it's working out pretty well.  I would like to start taking walks with her soon too.  At this point because of DS we are going somewhere almost every day.

    I'd also like to join a mom's group sometime soon because I'd like a little more adult interaction during the day.  Before DD was born I was volunteering a lot at DS's school.
