I have a son that was born at 25 wks 5 days. He is going to be released for the hospital within the next 10 days. I was wondering how long I need to wait before allowing visitors over and taking him to church. Doctor says a year.....

It depends on your baby's overall health and how developed his immune system is, but when a baby reaches 6-7 pounds usually the immune system is developed enough to be around people...obviously you don't want to invite sick people over, but if your visitors are healthy then it shouldn't be an issue. However, some preemies have weakened immune systems long after birth, and only your baby's doctor would know best when he's ready to be mingling with the general public.
