Our weekends now will definitely include trips to shopping centres - sometimes up to 3 times. Yup, Friday, Saturday AND Sunday. Elyssa's "Ah Mah" always says that the little one goes out shopping more than her!
Have brought her out since she was about 6 weeks old. Guess there are 2 schools of thought here:
Type 1 - There are germs outside, thus better not to expose babies to germs
Type 2 - Yes, there are germs outside, thus all the more reason to expose babies early so that they can build up their immune system.
Hubby and I are more of the "Type 2". She was a breast-fed baby at the beginning, so I figured out that she should be strong enough. So far so good! (touch-wood). Elyssa enjoys it, and she likes looking around when she's out. And the best part is that we're not restricted to stay at home all the time. If not, I'll just go nuts. Phew!
