I am currently 6 weeks pregnant with my first child and have a travel question. We have a family wedding in Miami, Florida (we live in Boston, MA) in early April. If baby is on time, he will be 7 weeks when this trip occurs. We would like to try to go down as a family (as crazy as traveling with a newborn will be), but I was wondering if any of you knew if it was safe to travel on a plane with a baby at this age?
I asked my OB, who advised me to ask the pediatrician, but the pediatrician has a policy to not advise parents on situations such as this until they are actually patients (i.e. - until after the baby is born), I'm sure for liability issues that could come back to them.
Thanks in advance!
