Casually dressed in a fedora, jeans, t-shirt and cardigan, the Oscar winner tried to blend-in with the Big Easy crowd and forget her marriage woes with her new bundle of joy alongside her.
Bullock – whose life has been rocked recently after her marriage to serial cheated Jesse James imploded – is hoping to that Louis can be partly raised in his birthplace.
The pair visited an art gallery in the French Quarter of the city with Bullock shielding tiny Louis as he sat inside a blacked-out SUV.
A bodyguard then carried the tot as his mom also dropped into some clothing boutiques too.
“Sandra wants to be a part of life in New Orleans and she believes it will be great for Louis to grow up there,” a source told Fox411.com.
“New Orleans will give her a fresh start with her little boy… Sandra will be a hands-on mom and Louis will be her focus every day. Though it’s been a tough time, Sandra still feels blessed and loved.”
Bullock has been preparing her home in the Garden District of New Orleans for her son with removal trucks being spotted recently parked outside.
Movers were then seen carting in furniture inside the $2.25 million, 6,000 sq feet home, which is near properties owned by actors John Goodman and Nicolas Cage, and the home previously owned by writer Anne Rice.
Bullock and her estranged husband Jesse James were frequent visitors to New Orleans. Superstars Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie also have a home there.
Her 2002 movie, Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood, was set but not filmed in Louisiana while New Orleans native Michael Lewis wrote The Blind Side for which she won her Best Actress Oscar.
Since Hurricane Katrina, Bullock has become a major patron of Warren Easton, the first public high school for boys in Louisiana.
The school, which dates to 1845 and survived going co-ed and desegregating, was having trouble opening after Hurricane Katrina because the storm caused $4 million in damages at the brick Canal Street building where it has operated since 1913.
While her son Louis is from New Orleans and it looks like his famous mom wants to make sure that her son knows all about his roots from an early age.
