I think when he was about 6 days old? We went for a walk to the shops...I only remember because an old couple stopped to have a peek, and asked how old he was...and they were cooing over him because he was so "new". Lol
4 days - and it was too soon.
But 7 days old was great introducing her to friends at a water park. Id had SUCH a stupidly long labour I was so eager to get back into "the real world" (and show her off!!!)

With ds I went supermarket shopping when he was 7 days old. I was in hospital for 6 days after a csec.
With dd I went back to work at 3 days old but she was strapped to my front the whole time and I would feed her in the frontpack and took her discretely out to my car to change her as I didn't want anyone touching/breathing on her. When she was 2 weeks old I let my workmates see her. One of my workmates was so thoughtful- she bought in a surgical mask as she had a tickle in her throat and was worried about dd.
If I could I would have stayed at home for at least the first few weeks. It would have been a nice break and bonding time for me and baby.
The day I came home from hospital.
I'd had a caesarean 5 days earlier though mind you, so I mostly just sat on a bench and waited. lol. But I was eager to NOT be at hospital OR home, so took her out. It's not like random people came and breathed on or touched her, so I didn't see a problem.
I'm not a terribly paranoid person when it comes to illness though.
DS was a few days old when we took him to visit DP's family because his mum hadn't come to the hospital to see him.
His first time out to a shop was around 4 weeks when I had to go Christmas shopping.
