The idea that babies have to stay inside the house for several weeks after they’re born is FALSE.
In fact, as long as your baby is healthy, getting some fresh air can be great for mom and baby if you take a few precautions.
First, be careful not to overdress or underdress your baby when you leave the house.
What temperature is OK for baby outside?
Experts recommend using caution in temperatures above 90 F (or 84 F with 70 percent humidity). Be extra careful about bringing baby outside in temperatures above 100 F, which can be potentially hazardous to little bodies. If you’re still unsure about your baby’s safety in the heat, tune into your mom intuition.
How cold is too cold for baby outside?
When Is It Too Cold to Take a Toddler Outside? Just like with babies, letting toddlers play or be outside in temperatures or wind chills below -15 degrees F should always to be avoided. It’s just too cold and the risk is too high that your little one will be susceptible to hypothermia or frostbite.
When can you bring your newborn out in public?
But it’s best to avoid large, crowded, enclosed places with poor ventilation (like the mall) until your baby is 6 to 8 weeks, which limits her exposure to airborne germs that could be dangerous for her immature immune system.
Is it good for babies to get fresh air?
Fresh air is good for us – everyone knows that. And it’s good for baby too. Nothing like getting them out for a brisk walk, even if it’s not the height of summer you can wrap them up and just go. One study (Journal of Sleep Research 2004) found that babies sleep longer when exposed to plenty of light in the afternoon.
