This is going to be one of those “to each their own” topics but I would love your opinions. I started having kids at a very young age but from my first child to my very last I have always had the same set of rules for my newborns. One of those rules was to never take them out of the house unless it was to the doctor’s office until they had their first set of shots, which is usually around two months of age. Even then I didn’t feel like there was a lot of places they needed to go. I defiantly didn’t take them around large groups of people. Call it over protective if you want but I just didn’t want to risk them catching something.
Nowadays with social media and everyone posting every aspect of their day I’m seeing a lot of smiling moms with their precious babies out and about so soon after delivering them. Have times changed so much that now it’s ok to take baby out into the world to brave all of the germs and sickness? Especially in the winter time when cold and flu is running rampant?!
I’m sure it’s safe to say that mom knows best and babies have been exposed to the elements early on in life. It just wasn’t as noticeable before Facebook and Twitter. What about you, did you take your newborns out to see the world as soon as they were born? Or did you have a certain waiting period?
