Let us guide you along week-by-week!)
We've been out for walks since day 1 - the day DS came home from the hospital! We usually go for 30-40 mins on our walks. During his first week of life, we've also taken him to the grocery store, and out to dinner (I was craving raw fish). As long as you are not taking your LO to a super-crowded place, you will be okay!
We live just outside of boston so temps are in the low 40s. I just bundle DS up with 2 layers of blankets plus a hat. That is warm enough for him.

brooke&ryan&baby:I think we took him to Target to grocery shop when he was about a week old. We kept the carseat cover on, no one bothered us, and he slept the entire time.
We did about the same. The Dr said it was personal choice but that with her own kids she took them out right away. I always kept her in the stroller with a blanket over her. I didn't let anyone look in or anything per drs advice.
elmoali:The cold won't make her sick and getting out of the house will be good for you. Don't get handing her off to sick people but if she's in her car seat/stroller/being worn, she's not going to get all that close to anyone.
Totally agree with this. We started taking our son out for walks at about a week old and are SO glad we did. He's close to 5 weeks now and has been in restaurants, malls, etc and hasn't gotten sick. I just don't let any strangers touch him (none have even tried.)
