Hi, Tomorrow my niece is having her 4th birthday party at McDonalds and my DS1 who is 2.5 yrs old is invited and I also have 1 week old DS2. I would love to be there (otherwise DH will bring DS1) but am not sure about bringing a 1 week old newborn to McDonalds. He will be in the pram most of the time, but may be need to come out for feeds, the party will go for 1 1/2 hrs.

Taking 1 week old baby out

I'd probably give it a miss and just send hubby... But that's just me xx

Yeah, enclosed space plus bunch of kids plus one week old seems a bit risky in my mind. But, that is just my opinion. You have to go with your mummy instinct.

I'd send hubby with ds1 and enjoy some bonding time alone with your new bub

I probably wouldn't purely for the "toddlers are such bad germ carriers" lol.
But if that didn't bother you then yes! Why not? Unless you didn't feel upto it and would prefer to stay home.
Good luck and Congrats on your little one, I didn't realise you had him already.

If I wanted to go I would, bub will be in pram or someone's arms right so I don't see any 'safety issue'. If you don't fancy going a one week old is a pretty good reason not to!

If your not keen dont go - you've got a very good 1 week old excuse
But if you want to go, have you got a carrier? Sling/wrap or something? If I were going I'd take baby in that so nobody can touch baby, kids can't poke Bub in the pram and adults will be less inclined to ask ( and easier to deny) for cuddles.
But it's totally up to you. Totally understandable if you want to give it a miss!

I probably wouldn't mainly because I'd be more inclined to be snuggled up in bed or on the couch with my newbie

if it were my decision, no way! i dont know about you, but a week after giving birth, i was still recovering, learning to feed, still bleeding heavily and had stitches and could not drive.
However, if you feel up to it go ahead and enjoy yourself, get some fresh air and socialise!
I would take bubs in a sling and cover him up.....u dont know what those little kids have been upto or got! Dont let anyone who has a cough near your 1 week old.
Enjoy whatever you decide.
