Just wondering what your first few weeks were like with a newborn? We're you able to go out or mostly house bound? Did you introduce the baby to friends/extended family in one big hit (wet the babies head) or did you take visitors over a period of time?
Im quite nervous about this stage, and am likely to deliver around Christmas time which is a hectic time of year and probably adding to my nerves. Wondering whether we should organize a get together for post birth in order to reduce the stream of visitors incase we are having a hard time, but is it reasonable to take a newborn out to a garden bar/cafe?
