My partner and I have a handsome baby boy who is 3 months now and want to take him and our dog to the park, as we want him to experience the slide sitting in my partners lap. Is this too young or is it alright to go?

  • I think 3 months is still too young.

  • Go & enjoy your family time!
    I am sure you, your partner, your bub & your dog will all enjoy yourselves tremendously!
    The fresh air will do you all the world of good & some happy memories of bub’s first playground adventure :)

  • Go and have fun! sitting with your partner he will be fine! Hope you all enjoy your park time

  • Definately go! Bub would love it

  • With your partner holding him it’s fine. They love being in the great outdoors!

  • there are some good comments here

  • us long as you hold him it should be fine

  • Baby will be fine I don’t think you will let anything happen but maybe start with the swings and leave the slide for another few months!

  • With your partner holding him i dont see it as an issue as long as your baby is held on to and is safe.
    Obviously it wont be a memory that you child will have when hes older but you will be able to tell if its something enjoyable for him or not. Sometimes with young babies that sudden rush of air on their face can make them panic so if that happens it would be best to leave it until hes older and more able to understand the concept.

  • Go for it! Its all about explore, learning and developing, right from the beginning!

  • As long as your partner holds tight to him I see no problem at all you will all enjoy it and its never to early for new experiences!

  • I would go. a lot of parks have a lot of little kids things to play on and it gets him out in the fresh air and experiencing different surrounds

  • It will be some great bonding time for daddy & baby- and you will be able to take some great pics :-)

  • Yes it fine I I thin ur always worried when their ur first bub I was s paranoid taking my man to get a few groceries before he was 6 weeks injections i would have a blanket covering his pram and would get so nervous people would cough over him but i think i was a little to paranoid. Let ur baby experience the big wide world

  • Babies love the fresh air and change in scenery. I’ve also found my bub to even sleep better after a nice day outdoors. Enjoy!
