After the baby 3/24/21

I have been thinking a lot lately about what my husband and I will be doing after the baby arrives as far as having visitors and going out into the world.  I am definitely apprehensive about having anyone over to the house who is not vaccinated, and even those who are I am going to ask they wear a mask inside.  My in-laws live two states away, so whenever they do come to visit they will most likely be staying with us, which presents a whole slew of issues I don't even want to begin to think about! Hopefully they will be able to follow the 'rules' that I set before they come. For me, even with my own parents, I think early on visits will need to be somewhat short. I want my husband and I to be able to get the hang of being first time parents before other people are around a lot. I know babies in general have weak immune systems for the first several months, so I would much rather be overly cautious! 


  1. Yes, better to be careful and most people understand. Life has changed so much and we have learnt to change.

  2. It’s good to be cautious, but it’s also important not to appear as though you’re favoring one set of grandparents over another. I suspect you’ll want your mom around a lot to help w/ the baby. I sure wish I’d had hep when my children were born. Have you talked to your OB or a pediatrician about this? I’d suggest getting their advice.

  3. These are good things to be thinking about, as well as great to be on the same page as your hubs before the visitors start trickling in!
