Is it safe to take a 1 month old out?
According to most pediatric health experts, infants can be taken out in public or outside right away as long as parents follow some basic safety precautions.

Is it better to change diaper before or after feeding?
Change your baby before you change sides (or halfway through the bottle). This usually wakes babies up enough to get them to take a full feeding. If that wakes your baby too much, change their diaper first, and then feed them. If you change the diaper after you feed your baby, you risk completely waking them again.
When can a newborn go swimming?
Babies can go into water from birth. However, they can’t regulate their temperature like adults, so it’s very important to make sure they don’t get too cold. Babies can also pick up an infection from water. Therefore, it’s generally best to wait until your baby is around 2 months old before you take them swimming.
