I had to go back to the hospital (45 minutes away) daily to check her BR levels, so we were having outings the next day. I went shopping too as our small town didn't have anything, including BM storage bags! I had a c-section too, so it wasn't as easy as a vaginal birth to recover from but I did okay, just didn't overdo it myself I think when you feel up to it, be it 1 day or 3 weeks + it's fine
Our first proper outing was when dd was 9 days old, we got her registered and then went into town clothes shopping as her newborn clothes were all too big for her. It was winter but she was well wrapped up and although we were out a couple of hours she slept the whole time x
Hi ladies! I'm a first timer just nearing the end of my second trimester, and I'm curious about what life will be like right after baby arrives. I don't have many friends with babies, so I'm not sure what is normal/expected/recommended. Once she is born, when can I put her in a sling and start going for walks, to the market, to festivals etc? I have no idea! She'll be a summer baby, so there will be lots happening, and I'd love to be able to take a week to recover then just start doing regular stuff with her in tow to enjoy it with me
I've had stuff that HAD to get done, like doctor's appointments and script refills and such that I had to be there for. I had a c-sec and can't drive, so my hubby has to. As such, Kesslie's been coming with us for the last 2 days to get things done. She hates her carseat, but loves being cuddled in her Moby wrap, so she doesn't seem to mind the outings at all.
