I would go but thats me. After the birth of both my kids I dont think I stayed home a single day after I left hospital (which was quite soon after their births), probably for the first two or three weeks.
Its up to you and what you feel comfortable doing.

If I were you I'd go. Gets bubs used to being in loud places so you don't have to sneak around the house when they are asleep. And it will do you good to get out of the house. I probably wouldn't let the kids hold him . But like others have said if you don't really want to go you've got a good excuse. But that's just me I took my DS out in his first week and I got out and about which I think helped me heal quicker.

I'd go cos it's a family party. But then I hate being home all day so I'd go to anything that was on/invited to.

i would go too.
i took both my children out, even earlier.
my 4mo girl went to toodyay show at 1 week old. was nice to get out of the house and get that first outing over and done with.
i don't think maccas will have any more 'germs' than anywhere else, and it's not like all the kids will be touching the baby who will be in the pram. or use a carrier like an ergo then baby is one on one with you for feeding too.
i agree with bigZ about the noise factor - it will make life a lot easier in the long run!

Hi all, I have decided not to go only because after the party I have visitors coming to our house (to meet the new born) and then more visitors after dinner! So I plan to stay home and rest while Dh takes DS. My brother understands.
