Review: Going Outside for the First Time (with a new baby)

Review: Going Outside for the First Time (with a new baby)

Remember outside? It was so great. The sounds, smells, people, nature. Ah yes. But doesn't that also include germs and probably unsafe stuff that we never noticed before??

My wife and I took Ottavia outside for an early winter’s stroll.

Lessons learned:

  • Most city houses are not wheeled device accessible, use the exit with the least amount of steps

  • Layers are usually a solid winter choice, but they can be overdone easily…  

 

Why going outside for the first time (with a new baby) rules:

  • Fresh air, sounds and sights, however blurry, for them to take in and process

  • It’s fun to introduce the baby to your (and now their) stomping grounds

  • It reinforces your own existence
