    I would go personally. I never was overprotective and happily let friends and family cuddle my baby without questioning their vaccination status. My babies were all out within their first week of life. I'd go nuts if I stayed home and hibernated for the first 6 weeks of their life.

    I baby wear and head out! No one is touching my babies though unless I allow it at home.

    I'm a relaxed parent.
    It didn't even occur to me to coop my newborn up inside the house because of germs.
    With my first baby we went window shopping at a major shopping centre when he was 6 days old, because I was bored.
    With my second and third, life goes on. I was out at playgroup/preschool/swimming lessons/shopping/etc from just a couple of days old.
    I babywear though so that is useful I guess to avoid people getting too close. Maybe you could do that OP.

    I am a fairly protective parent over all but I have no problem taking my babies out and about. When you have a few kids in school you can't just stay home.

    With dd3 we stop in at movieworld for lunch on the way home from the hospital. It was great.

    I'm more of the stay home as much as possible to rest and bond mumma. As a default this minimised exposure to illness. Social engagements can wait. Enjoy your early days wth bub and lay as low as possîble.

    I've never wrapped my babies in cotton wool and stayed cooped up at home. I have always just continued with daily life as usual getting out and about.

    I was very protective. I'm only just learning to become relaxed now.

    When you see your child on life support at two weeks old. Breaks your heart.

    With my first two I was out and about as soon as I left hospital without a second thought. Whooping cough really wasn't a concern to me then though (they are nearly 10 and 7).
    My third though was 8.5 weeks premature and in the NICU and SCN for over two months and while I did have to continue daily life (school pick ups, swimming lessons etc...) I kept him very close and was pretty darn protective!

    I wasnt concerned about germs, & was out and about from as soon as we left hospital. That being said, all 3 of mine took a LONG time to get breastfeeding established & we had lots of issues with weight loss, etc - so I would be taking appx 2 hrs to get the baby to feed at that stage, + would have to express. I brought my portable breast pump everywhere with #3 & expressed in public under a blanket, lol. But by baby #3, I also highly valued bonding time with baby at home. So op,dont worry about what anyone else thinks - do what is right for YOU. Dont commit to anything, & if you feel like going out, go! If youd rather stay home and snuggle your baby, do that. You will never get the newborn time back again, it goes so quickly, so spend it doing what YOU want to be doing with your bubba.
