When is an ideal time to begin travelling by plane with the baby?
I think it depends on the baby and you. But this is a question you should ask your babies doctor. I would check to see if the doctor thinks it is safe. I traved with my 2nd child at a very early age but, it was due to military serivce and I had to bring him to my family for 3 months due to one of my deplyments. ( my husband and I had an overlap) I got a check up from the babies doctor and the doctor gave the okay for my son to fly. That is what I would suggest..
Good Luck ..
If traveling internationally, you may need to give your child certain vaccinations against developing world diseases i.e. malaria, and babies may not be able to handle that. To me, this is a health issue and you should pay attention to what your doctor says above anyone else.
I think it depends on Dr reccomendations. Your ped should be able to tell you, but I was told 3 months would be safe and only travel before then if absolutely needed
