There are of course some days where I am overwhelmed and confused but we have also definitely found a bit of a groove 2 months in. I am too nervous still to go somewhere where A can run free while I’m also tending to C, but they both love their stroller so we are out and about every single day and pretty much have done so since C was born. A gets tons of playground time at school, and we take him to the park on the weekends, so I try not to feel guilty for trapping him in the stroller during these early months. He won’t remember, he has fun anyway, and I feel confident enough to get us all of the house.
Our favorite places to go have been indoor or outdoor malls before they open in the morning; I get coffee and we do laps and talk about the things we see. Sometimes we go in the afternoon as well but then I am too tempted to shop 😉 We also like to walk around the lake, or go to the zoo. Target is always an easy outing too – I don’t go with a list of things I need in case things go south, but we just browse around.
So during newborn time, you don’t need to be supermom if you don’t want to – you can stick within your comfort level and ease into the outings 🙂
