Hi everyone, I'm a new mama to a 34+6 weeker who narrowly avoided the NICU. She's 3 weeks old (actual) now, growing well and luckily healthy.
While our ped has cleared us for stroller walks outdoors right out of the gate, she wants us to keep LO away from crowded and indoor public places (like the mall, restaurants...) until at least after her 2 month vaccines. We're totally fine with sacrificing our social outings for the sake of LO's health, of course!
However, I have family overseas and DH and I would love to visit them with the baby. But considering it will entail a 9+ hour flight in a crowded airplane with recycled air, I'm kind of freaking out about doing it in the foreseeable time. DD's lungs are fine according to her doc, but I'm still very paranoid.
I'm going to check with my pediatrician of course, but I'm curious what other people's experiences have been with traveling with preemies safely.
Just to have an idea what timeframe to expect: When did you take your late preemies on their first plane ride?
