we live in maine and are going to a wedding in crested butte, colorado this fall- pretty high up there! does anyone know anything about bringing a babe (11 months old) to high altitude like that and any special precautions we should take?
thanks.

I took my dd to Boulder, CO at about 9 or 10 months- we didn't do anything special and it was fine.

I didn't have any trouble either - just keep yourself hydrated so that he can nurse a lot.

That's true, you need to be prepared to drink a lot of extra water. Not only will the altitude get you, but it's very dry in Colorado. (I lived there for several years)
