I am looking to taking a direct, 2 hour flight after the baby is born. The trip will be domestic and for about 4-5 days to visit my grandmother and introduce her to the baby. I am not looking at "doing" a whole lot while there. It will just be me and the baby. My H will stay home with my daughter. I was thinking of going about 6-8 weeks postpartum and it will be a C-section. Around 6-8 weeks, did you feel like you could handle travelling, a flight, etc. Were you recovered enough to do this? Was your postpartum bleeding mostly done (separate from your first period if you got that back)? I can't really remember exact time frames on any of this from DD. Thanks for your input!
