First Outing Since New Baby

For the first time since I gave birth to my chubby little blessing of a newborn, I decided to see what it was like on the outside. I had done nothing but throw on pajamas and usually no shirt, then either sit on the couch nursing 24/7 or lay on my side — whatever it takes to keep him from fussing. He is a hungry little guy!

The park was my choice this time around. The idea was to let our crazy toddler go bananas for a while after being cooped up with me in the house, trying to keep our baby warm, fed, and happy.

Of course, I didn’t really get to visit the park for long because I was spending most of my time in the family mini-van nursing the new born. I’m telling you, he is hungry!

The only thing that mattered was that our toddler had a blast. He was running around like a mad-man, hooting and hollering like he should be.

Finally I got to go out and get sticky in the near 90 percent Florida humidity while hubby held the baby.

Any day I can make sure he knows that he is still at the center of my heart is a good day–sweaty or not. And it was so nice to just get out after recovering and adjusting to our new addition.

What was your first post pregnancy visit?

    I have dogs that need walking ( 3. Collies ) and a husband who works long hours, so our first outing was a walk around the park at 5 days old, we have been going every day bar one since!
    It is really hard to drag myself out for a walk but so necessary.
    Wee guy is 5 weeks now and e have gone out to breakfast, lunch everywhere! I just keep him close to me and don’t let anyone get too close.
