It will depend on more then one thing for me. How I feel and the weather. The weather here has been so crazy who knows what it will be like. I don't think I would be able to handle not going anywhere for 6 weeks.
As you can see everyone is given different advice.
My baby and I will be out and about immediately. I told my pediatrician we will be taking a flight at about 4 weeks and she was cool with it. The only advice I got was for international travel. She said I should try and wait till she's two months but it's not a hard and fast rule.
I'm also having a meet the baby party at about 4 weeks (that's what the plane ride is for) so obviously you can see I'm not worried much about germs or whatever.
