Houses of Worship
In a perfect world... Your cutie patootie will become part of your faith community right from the very start. That way, by the time he's grown into a toddler, he'll be familiar with its traditions.
The reality Churches, temples, and mosques are traditionally welcoming of all ages. In fact, they often encourage members to attend services as a family. Some even have a nursery or a "crying room," where parents can hear and see what's going on while tending to their noisy or fussy little ones.
Our advice Sit on the aisle so you can slip out or take turns with your husband walking the baby around if he gets cranky. One caution: Be wary of too many people handling your sweetie; to avoid spreading germs to hands and face, offer up your baby's tootsies to touch.
