Hey I think it all depends on when your ready and when you feel confident enough to.
I expect you have to wait until the baby has had all injections and you know he or she is healthy and happy.
I am due in August and planning to take him away in February, I know the first 3/4 months are going to be so tough so want something to look forward to.
As soon as your baby is born see how you feel and ask your midwife for her opinion for some reassurance x

you can take a baby on a plane at 6 days old or above but i personally think this is way too young. depends wen you and baby are ready. i took my daughter on a plane to spain when she was 1 year old and was very challenging.

I guess it depends where to and how you and your baby are in the early days. 3 days in Cornwall would be a lot easier early on than 3 weeks in Cuba, for example. I wouldn't advise going anywhere where malaria is a risk until baby is at least 1.

my mum wants me to go over and live with them in Bulgaria so I have the grandparents on tap, I'm thinking about it because I miss them terribly and I know I will want my mum's advice when the baby arrives, but I've looked in to the health care in Bulgaria and I really don't fancy it at all!
I think I may pop over to see them in about April, bub will be 3 months at that stage and it won't be too hot or too cold. I may think more about moving over when my baby is a year old and had all the injections and it's a bit easier on us both, I wish they'd move back to the UK but thats just selfish lol!!

Thing is with mum and dad actually living there they will make sure i have everything i need for when i get there so i'm not worried about that, it's the flight that worries me, my ears kill on planes it must be horrid for babies Sad
