- Try to convince your husband that you've healed from the labor and that it's been long enough to take a baby to a place where everyone will want to touch her. Sure, we took her to graduation, but only family held her. Church is different- everyone wants to see and touch babies.
- When he refuses, take drastic measures: just put on your church clothes and go whether he likes it or not. :)
Ok. After the fact, it may have been a little soon, but I was going crazy sitting at home while McKay went to church. Margaret was great during sacrament- slept the whole time. Sunday School was good, too, since I had McKay to hold her (he can calm her so quickly!) But Relief Society was a little more difficult. She wanted to nurse, but also, she didn't want to. It was really warm in there and heat bothers her. She sucked on my pinky a lot of the time and I tried to blow cool air on her- and it's amazing how difficult it is to sign the attendance roll with a baby in your arms!
