My baby is due on March 10 and I am trying to decide if I should go on this weekend trip in April. The trip is the last weekend of April so the baby will around 7 weeks old. It is a camping trip but in bunkhouses that are climate controlled and there is going to be lots of hiking and activities going on. Do you think 7 weeks is too young to take an infant away from home for the weekend?
