Have we all been out and about with baby?

First time moms....how is it getting out with your little one?

Second time moms...has it been a lot harder to get two out or not so different from one.

Third plus moms...have you noticed a difference?

I've only taken Laila out with the others once to the store. It went ok just a little extra prep work. The older kids helped out. I'm actually afraid to take the two littlest out alone. I've taken Laila out alone 3 times to her dr. appts. It's been far too cold (single digits and below zero) for the past week and a half to take the littles out anyways.

We've been out and about for weeks now, although, believe me, I'd rather stay home! It's a PITA with all these kids to go anywhere

I actually think going from 2 to 3 was easier than it's been going from 3 to 4, so I am adjusting a bit. I think after summer, it may be easier when DS goes to preschool one more day (I may increase it this semester, max is 3 days a week and he's going 2) and DD2 starts preschool for 1 day (maybe 2 if she likes it ALOT and takes naps well). Life may be a lot easier on those days!

I took all five out to my aunts house today. Other than the van being full of noise it was nothing terrible. I wouldn't take them all food shopping lol

We've been out several times. Definitely try to do a walk at least every other day. We've been to the mall and out to eat a few times. I was nervous about BFing in public but haven't even gotten a second glance. I found a cafe in my neighborhood that has a playroom in the back and does play dates.

Baby Emeric is really good when we go out. He passes out the second you put him in the stroller or Ergo and gives me a few minutes of fussing to figure out what he needs before he cries.

I haven't gone anywhere alone with the three but they have been fine for Marko and I. I am not brave enough to do a restaurant with them though. LOL

One to two was cake...to three gives go reservations about going alone or out to eat. Mostly because Flynn still needs so much attention.

Put Whit in my Rockin' Baby Sling and walked a block or two to the playground today. Didn't plan to stay long but was there a couple of hours. Tried unsuccessfully to nurse him there, and he cried the entire way home. All-in-all a good trip after my lazy fest!!!

I think you are too kind. Kind people give the people around them a hard time. You can't express yourself honestly, because you are worried about hurting other people's feelings, and that makes you miserable.~"Winter Sonata"

We're hermits. We've been to the grocery store twice and to Joann's. Thats it. It's hectic getting everyone ready to go, but I put Lilah in our mei tai for shopping and she's happy. It will be easier when she's older..

I took the girls out by myself this morning to Target. It went better than anticipated.

Really good actually. I took him by myself when I went out to lunch with a friend the other day, which i was really nervous about but it wasnt bad at all lol He was awake the whole time too. Just needed to be fed in the middle of my meal but he does that at home anyways lol

We go to the store once or twice a week, so far it is ok. Its a giant PITA to do everything with Astin still hooked up to oxygen. Really hoping that comes off at his next appointment.
