Hi, DH and I are traveling to NYC in Dec. and our little one will be 4 1/2 months. Any advice? DH has been once but I've never been. We were going to leave the baby at home but I'm just not comfortable doing it so early. We have nothing planned yet but are booking our flights, hotel, etc. in March.
Re: Need help with trip to NYC
I thought that I would be able to leave my unborn child overnight at 4 months to attend my oldest friend's wedding in NJ - just one state away - and when the time came I couldn't leave her, and it was hard to plan to leave her with breastfeeding, too.
Wait it out. If you don't believe me, try asking this on the 0-6 months board : 0-6 Months
Best wishes with your new baby, and I hope you make the right decision for you and your baby!
I would wait until the spring to cometo NYC... It gets really cold and the streets can be like a wind tunnel... However it is nice to see the tree and the windows.
To avoid illness onthe plane I would put saline in you DCs nose. They say keeping the nose hydrated cuts down on illness.
SInce it would be really cold I would suggest youplan out where you want to go and get a hotel central to that. The cab drivers are pretty bad and I have more then enough times been jostled into the plexiglass... SO you would want to limit your cab travels...
