Bringing Your Baby Outside

One of the rules of newborn care that of newborn care was that new mothers and infants should hole up in for weeks after arrival. Needless to say, while you’re outside and around you’ll need to practice the same great newborn care. Dress your infant for the weather so your baby will feel warm enough but not overly hot.

Protect the baby’s soft skin from the sun’s harsh sun rays (even on overcast days) with a sun hat and a light blanket. Stash diapers, wipes, an additional blanket, and a change of clothing in your bag or stroller, and begin slowly with a short appearance, so you won’t get exhausted. Avoid large crowds like the supermarket or shopping mall for the first month approximately. The more people your infant is exposed to, the more likely it’s that he/she can come in touch with someone who’s ill.

Can it be safe for a newborn to be exposed to disease-harboring crowds? Well, yes and no. It pays to be extra cautious for the first month — the younger your infant, the less time his/her immune system has had to reinforce. That goes double for babies born prematurely or with other health issues because their immune system is not strong enough. So in those early weeks, avoid busy indoor places, such as malls, preschool classrooms, perhaps even large family parties. Indoors or outside, keep your infant in a stroller, sling, or carrier to reduce strangers’ temptation to touch. It’ll still occur, but don’t be bashful about telling everyone just look, but don’t touch your baby.

In regards to family and friends, they’re likely as excited to meet your newborn as you’re to show off, but place and apply this easy ground rule: All admirers who need to touch or hold his/her must wash their hands first — and anyone who’s definitely ill or has a rash should remain (far) away. Be particularly cautious with little kids, who could be taking a wide range of infectious material. Instruct them to softly pat infant’s back, or touch your baby’s tiny toes, but never his/her hands or face. And after any trip or social scene, clean infant’s hands with a wipe or wet, soapy cloth.
