This weekend we have our 2nd outing with BM. The 1st outing was just myself and the baby, my husband is going this time. We are going to the zoo! We are excited, and it's BMs birthday so I got her a gift. I got her a heart necklace, suggested on this board, it's engraved on the front "I carry you in my heart" and his initials are engraved on the back.
I posted previously about our 1st outing, which consisted of me taking her to her post partem appt, going to her work to show off the baby and then hitting the mall. That outing threw me for a loop in a negative way. I'm hoping this time around it's better. I'm looking for advice on easing the anxiety.
He's only 6 weeks old, so I know he won't get much out of the zoo, but we wanted a place we would be actively moving and constantly conversating. We also put a time constraint on it (12-4) so we wouldn't throw his whole day off. We have a 1 1/2 hour drive there and back.
Can anyone share details of their outing experiences around his age? And/or give advice?
