We believe you must leave the house even when it seems easier just to stay home. Take some walks outside with your new stroller to get some fresh air. Most babies respond well to the rhythm of the stroller, the fresh air, and changing light. Don’t push yourself too hard the first month.
C-Section sisters, no brisk walking for you, but you need to get outside. Have someone take you and your little bundle to a place other than your house for a change of scenery.
My first walk was 2 blocks. Literally. One out, one back. Take it easy.
