Newborns are used to their mother's tight and quiet belly and they do not always like the outside world. Babies specifically do not like noise or a bright light. These factors can tire and irritate the baby, making him/her tearful and nervous.
It all depends on three factors: the health of the baby, the health of the young mother and the current season of the year. The first walk of a newborn baby is a great event in the life of young parents. It is true that the first contact of the child with the world outside the four walls takes place when returning from the hospital - then usually it is a short moment in the air, which the infant spends in a carrier on the way to the car, and then home. This has nothing to do with the actual walk.
Many people believe that a baby hat is essential, regardless of the temperature outside. We ask the pediatrician how it really is: when can a baby be taken for a walk bareheaded without fear of catching a cold, and when it is necessary to put a hat on the baby.
