Your Toughest Baby Product Questions—Answered!
How soon can we travel with our newborn?
Wait until your baby is two months old before flying, advises Dr. Paul Horowitz, MD, a pediatrician in Portland, Oregon. By then, your baby’s immune system will be developed enough to deal with germs in the plane’s re-circulated air.
If you’re traveling by car, you get the green light. “Lengthy car rides are fine for a newborn as long as everyone else in the car is well,” says Dr. Horowitz. Plan to make stops every 30 to 60 minutes to check on your baby.
