Newborn around the holidays


How is everyone planning to handle the holidays with a newborn? Do you plan to go to all your normal holiday gatherings? Only go to small family gatherings? Plan to stay home and only celebrate with your husband (SO) and baby (and other children)? With our baby being born at the end of October I'm not sure how to handle the large family gatherings scheduled for November and December. I'm worried about baby being exposed to an excess amount of germs and lots of people expecting to hold her when she's still tiny.
