I had my dd2 out for a walk with the dog 16 hours after birth. It's whenever you feel ready to do it.

was told by my sister to wait a week just wanted more opinions on the matter. Only had the baby at 3 am this morn and was not told very much before being discharged

we took ds2 to the local shops straight from hosp. he was only a few hours old!! Had NO shopping and ds1 was in need of some attention while i was full of adrenalin before the tiredness set in!
