How Long Did You Wait to Party Postpartum?

It's one thing to make a coffee run so soon after having baby and quite another to doll up for a night on the town. A newborn rarely allows mommy to step away from the bassinet for longer than two hours at a time, and many mums are simply sleep deprived, which makes dressing up for a swanky soiree a low priority on the to-do list. But there's always someone out there that there that deviates from the norm.

Ellen Pompeo and hubby Chris Ivery just welcomed their wee daughter Stella on Sept. 15 and already the svelte mama was paparazzi ready at David Beckham's Originals by Originals Adidas. She rocked the blue carpet and made postpartum life look all too easy. It appears the glow of her pregnancy has carried over into motherhood for the blessed new mommy.

How long did you wait to hit the social scene after having baby?

I was at a bridal shower when she was 6 days old (though she did come with me) and then at the wedding (for the same bride) when she was exactly a month, it was completely fine and we had a great time. She did come with us though and was a rock star at both the wedding and the reception. I have to say I didn't look nearly as svelte though!!

I didn't even leave the house for 7 weeks. It was winter and whatever is out there is not as important as my son's health. As for the first gathering...he must have been 3 months and it was my birthday.But to call it a "party" would be a stretch. I gave up partying when I found out I was going to be a mother.

My baby girl's almost six weeks old and the only social event was her aunt's birthday, where we took her with us. I think it's so weird how all these celebrities are out so soon. Why have a nanny take care of your newborn if there's no need?

One week after my son was born, I went to a big annual party my friends was too soon. While there, my husband called to tell me that he and my daughter came down with terrible fevers. I was an hour away and rode home freaking out that my newborn would get it. Luckily, my brother went over and cared for them while I was en route.
