Please excuse the naivety of a first-time mum!

I am due on 12th April, and there is a concert i would kill to love to go to on 20th June. Obviously I do not know exactly when i'll give birth, but if she arrives between due date and two weeks over, she'll be between 8-10 weeks

My DH says we cannot take a baby that age to a concert. Is he right? I saw a baby at a Rugby match in a big stadium once, it was days old, and slept all through. Although a rock concert will be louder. I was thinking a sling and some ear muffs/hat?!

Am I stupid and idiotic BU?

Opinions of experienced mums appreciated. I hope to be EBF. My mum is close by and could babysit but I think she'll be too young to be away from me, and me from her smile

Uhmm bit silly don't you think? You're in for a bit of a shock if you think a baby is so portable and handy that you can take him to a concert. I wouldn't mind betting you don't even go on your own when baby comes, you'll be knackered and if breastfeeding won't be able to anyway. Life does change when you have a baby, well ought to anyway.

Ear defenders, lots of milk. She'll be fine!

This is a few months old now...

Aside from the obvious- it would be too loud for a baby and not a suitable environment... OP, you may not want to go. It depends. Some women are raring to go a week after child birth, others it takes at least 12 weeks before they can think of going out for an evening. I would also suggest you may not enjoy yourself and may be too knackered.

Look, Bruce isn't retiring as far as I'm aware, he will tour again.
