There are no hard and fast rules for traveling with a brand-new baby, and many families are comfortable hitting the road shortly after their baby is born. But for most, it makes more sense to stay close to home.
Early infancy is a time of transition for a new baby and her family. Establishing feeding and sleep patterns is challenging even when you're not in transit, and both mother and baby need a lot of rest – which may be hard to come by while traveling.
Exposing an infant to large crowds and public places, where there are many disease-causing germs, makes it more likely that she'll catch something. You'll also need to protect her from temperature extremes and make sure she's able to feed as often as she needs to.
