Has anyone done this? How old was your Bub?
We are considering travelling to Europe at the start of Jan. DH is adamant that we are going but I'm nervous to commit to the idea because we will have a newborn baby.
Bub is due 9th November but more likely to come a week overdue, like my previous 2 boys, so I'm expecting a 16th November birth date or thereabouts.. He will therefore be about 7 weeks old when we plan to go. Just in time for first round of vax and he will be breastfed.
We can't go any later because Ds1 starts school at the end of January and we don't want him to miss his first day of big school. How important is the first day for a child? (Kindergarten in NSW) I think it's a pretty big deal but DH doesn't think so: regardless, he has agreed that if we go, we will be back before school starts, which will give us about 3 weeks overseas. It wouldn't be worth going for any less time given the cost for 4 full price tickets.
Any feedback would be greatly appreciated
ETA: I just realised we will also need a few days buffer between coming back and school starting so that DS1 can get over any jet lag.
Also, we travelled with our Ds1 overseas when he was 11/12 weeks old and it was fine, easiest travel ever, but 6-7 weeks just seems so much more fragile..
