Baby immune system: when to bring baby out in public?

We waited until the 5-6 week mark before we took him to the store or any place other than the doctor's office or a walk around the neighborhood. The doctor said to try and avoid any indoor places with a lot of people until around the 6 week mark when their immune systems start developing their own antibodies. He said walks outside were fine. Honestly, it was really tough staying locked up inside for that long, so I wouldn't blame any mom that takes a baby younger than 6 weeks out in public for a quick trip if it helps the sanity level! lol
