It's all a matter of personal level of confidence and comfort-ability, plus the baby's health. It was different for me for each one. My oldest didn't really "go out" for about a week. But that's not because I was nervous, I just didn't have a way. For my second, we were traveling with a carnival at the time she was born, so I guess you could say she was two days old, cuz when we "came home" from the hospital, we were in public. For my son, it was three days. I had him on Thursday morning, and we were in church that Sunday. And for my youngest, it was about 2 weeks, due to my level of pain and discomfort, I was not going anywhere. Unless of course you count families homes as public, in which case all of my children were "in public" within three days of being born. There really is no need to over protect them by keeping them in your home. Unless there is an illness you are dealing with. ~peace and blessings~

I dont remember how long it was before our daughter was taken out, at that stage we didn't need to be going anywhere - i was home, my partner was working & if we needed anything then he'd pick ip up on the way home from work so it wasn't a necessity for us to go out for a little while. I don't think there's such thing as a 'SAFE' time to take a baby out - just as long as you are prepared for whatever the weather conditions are, have everything you need with you - then you'll be fine to go out. You technically take a new born out the day you leave the hospital, you have to remove him from the hospital, take him for a ride in the car & then you bring him inside when you get home so whenever you get the urge to go out is fine as long as you take everything you'll need.

It depends on several factors. 1. How comfortable are you with having other people you don't know coming up and looking at the baby, and breathing on the baby. 2. How healthy is the baby. Does it have an immune problem. This can be from conditions like downs syndrome or prematurity or other health problems. 3. The time of the year. My sisters baby was born 11 weeks early weighing 2 #s 1 1/2 oz. So she wouldn't take him out except to doctors apointment until he was several months old.
