    In your opinion/experience. The worst advice I have ever been given was from a paed.

    Default Would you travel with a newborn?

    What was the advice?

    Wow this thread has really veered off course. OP there will always be a risk when taking a newborn unvaccinated child in public. At the end of the day there's no law that says you can't, and since you have older children you know how you yourself cope 3 weeks post partum.

    If you think you'll be fine to fly and are willing to take your midwives advice and accept the potential risk to bubs then go.

    The decision is up to you and your DH alone.

    Things could go wrong or things could be fine, you just can't know for sure.

    Where's your evidence to back this up?

    Op, I probably would go and just keep baby close.

    Can we not make the OP feel crap about choosing to take advice from her care provider.

    I'm a flight attendant and lots of people take their newborns onboard.. usually we see them from 4 weeks but I have one younger. You may need to get the OK from your doctor for yourself and Bub to travel.
    Yes you can get sick easily on planes so if the chance of that happening worries you I would suggest not flying. Also like everyone else has said it would depend when you gave birth and your recovery. At the end of the day the choice is yours x

    I personally wouldn't. I wanted to be in the comfort of my own home and surrounds while bonding/breastfeeding/getting to know my babies needs. Plus I had c sections so it was better for 'me' to be at home. Plenty of other opportunities later on Op. Do what you are comfortable with.

    My personal opinion, for your own health and peace of mind as well as the babies...... Don't go!

    I would go OP.

    Honestly, I was going out everywhere a week after DD was born. DS claimed to be bored so I dod not have much choice. I babywore all the time though.

    DD did get sick from DS so if the baby is not your first they would be more likely to get sick from your older kids anyway.

    Have your WC in 3rd trimester and that will give bubs some immunity in the first few weeks.
