Going Out to Eat

My husband and I love to go out to eat. Did this all change for you when you had a baby?

Our Mommy MD Guide’s reply: My husband and I took our baby everywhere, even to restaurants. We took along some favorite toys or books. Often we went out with friends, and we all took turns holding him. I also brought along food that he liked to eat, and we made sure we didn’t stay too long. I think he enjoyed the change of scenery! Restaurants are generally very visually stimulating.

Taking our son out to eat was actually easier early on, before he started walking. After that, he didn’t want to sit still, and someone had to chase after him.
