In regards to them getting sick, do you pass them around to anyone who wants a cuddle?
Do you avoid big gatherings of people? Ie. Special events, shopping centres.
For a bit of an example, when DD will be 10 days old there is a big charity event for a great cause in my area, and when she is 30 days old is our towns yearly huge markets, they shut all the main streets in town and have loads of fun things for the kids.
I probably won't take DD to either, and my family think I'm being a bit over protective. I even am worried about DS going in case he picks something up and brings it home.
Just wondering what other people's views are on this topic? If you wouldn't take them out in crowded public places, at what age do you think it's ok?
