We're expecting our first baby around October 27. I've been hoping that we could fly to visit my family for Christmas, but I'm wondering whether that is realistic. The trip isn't absolutely necessary, but I would love for our baby to meet my 91-year-old grandmother (who will not be able to travel to visit us). If we didn't go in December, we could possibly go in April instead. It is a short (approx 1 hour) flight, and transportation to and from the airport would only take 10-15 minutes on each end. We would be staying in my parents' house, with room for us and the baby, easy access to laundry, and people who are supportive of breastfeeding, family bedding, etc. Assuming that our baby arrives between 38 and 42 weeks, he/she would be somewhere between 6.5 and 10.5 weeks old when we left on the trip. What do you think? Is this doable? Are there other things we should be considering?
