 Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Since my ninth month of pregnancy, I have been sitting at home. My baby is two weeks old now. I have always been a social person and loved going for parties and social gatherings. But I hate to leave my baby at home. Can I start taking him out with me for parties or social gatherings?

Nilima (Mumbai, India)

A: Two weeks is a little too small for such outings. Wait until your baby is at least a month old.

Q: Can my one month baby travel by air? Is there any danger of air pressure?

Nirav (Bangalore, India)

A: If possible, wait till your baby is 3 months old or else put ear plugs and keep your child's pacifier in his mouth while traveling.

Q: What is the safe age for a newborn baby to travel an 18 hr journey by train? What precautions need to be taken?

Sanjita (Mumbai, India)

A: Generally, I would advise travel only after the baby is one month old. If the baby is being breastfed, there is no need to take any additional precaution.

Q: At what age is it safe to travel with a child? Is it safe to travel with a 3 month old?

Kirti (Pune, India)

A: As long as your child is healthy, it is quite safe to travel at the age of three months. If your child is exclusively on breast milk, it will be easier to take care of him because you will not have to worry about preparing his meals. If you are planning to travel by air, you may want to feed the child (breast milk or otherwise) during take off and landing so the change in air pressure does not affect him (and his ears will not pop).
