I took my son shopping on the way home from the hospital. I also took him into the office at work :) Honestly, I just carried on with my normal life. If your baby is healthy he'll be fine.

On the other side of it, I didn't drag my daughter around everywhere because she had had some birth complications and had to remain in hospital for 10 days, so I was a little more cautious as she was quite fragile.

I agree to be cautious when visiting friends that might be seek.But we also went shopping with our son when he was 9days old.We also visited friends and carried on with our normal life with the baby.

Whenever you decide. Be cautious of others around you that might be sick, but getting out and getting fresh air is good. When I had my youngest I was at my middle child's softball tournament then next weekend. Our lives did not stop just because we had another baby.
