You can begin taking your newborn baby out in public as soon as you leave the hospital with him or her.

There's no need to wait to take your newborn out in public.

A newborn does not have to be kept away from public areas or people after they are born.

Taking your newborn baby out in public as soon as you can do so is good for the baby as the sunshine and fresh air will help the baby build a good healthy immune system and the sunlight helps to give the newborn vitamins it needs.

Newborns and infants can be taken out in public or outside right away as long as parents follow some basic safety precautions.

There's no need to wait until 6 weeks or 2 months of age. Getting out, and in particular, getting outside in nature, is good for parents and babies.

However if it's way too hot outside or too cold then stay inside as much as possible until it's cooled down and if it's cold out and you need to take the newborn baby outside you can do so but just make sure you dress the baby warmly.

The baby will be just fine going out in public without waiting.
