Hi everyone! I'm new here, but I wanted to post because I'm a new mom and I guess just need some support.
I take my 12 week old with me on errands all the time and he's so good! So my DH and I thought it would be fun to take the little guy to the 99 (casual restaurant) for a quick family lunch. We went right after he ate, so we would have enough of a buffer before started getting fussy, but right as we were finishing up our meals he started crying. Like, purple-faced screaming. I picked him up and held him to soothe him and within 5 minutes he was okay, but I'm so embarrassed!
I guess what I'm wondering is if I did this too early on (12 weeks)? Should I have waited a bit longer before taking him to a restaraunt? I kind of feel like a bad mom, and it's hard not to when it feels like everyone on the restaurant is staring at you...
Please tell me I'm not alone here.
