Took my 6 week old on an 8 week road trip through the US. Mix of camping and air bnb. Great age as they can’t run away at that point!

Easier at two months than two years

Need more details on shots. If your 2 mo old has had 8 week shots then you should be fine, but I would consult your pediatrician. My good friend is a pediatrician and he strongly advised I not take my 8 week old on a plane, but car is a different story as there is less exposure

Yes, just make sure you are loaded with all baby stuff

Hell yeah I took my 2 month old to Scotland and London, every baby is different but you know your kid and whether they can handle it or not

But I echo the shots comment, get that done at least a week before the trip. You can get 2 month shots at 6 weeks

We did what EY1 suggested. Once shots are out of the way you’re free for adventures

Lol. No problem at all.

Thank you all!

Of course. Even week old babies do fine on trips. That’s what baby seats are for. Don’t get stressed, she will sleep all the way.

We went around the world in the first few months. Kids are fine.

We took our 7.5 week old to Europe for 10 days (3 countries/4 cities) and she loved it, so I think you’re fine with a road trip!

For moms in California - can anyone explain to me how the FMLA/Paid Leave works in coordination with EY’s sixteen weeks? It seems that all the new moms take 6 months and I’m trying to figure out how that works if we’re only given 16 weeks. My husband and I are currently waiting for an adoption placement so I have no idea when I’ll need to use it, but I’m hoping it’s sometime soon :) Since I’m not actually pregnant, asking these questions feels weird, but I keep reminding myself it’s okay. TIA!

Asking this question here for a reason. In our culture and set up, a majority of the time is spent in cooking. We usually don’t eat microwave meals. I want to understand how Indian families cope up with all the traveling associates with consulting. Does the mother or father usually stay at home or be in a “light” job?

What age were you when you had each kid? I'm 32 and we are trying for our first. SO is 36. But the endless relentless lectures from the women of my family about why "it's so late! Hurry!

Our nanny takes my 7 month old out for one, sometimes 2, long walks every day (weather permitting). Love the idea of fresh air every day but its often for several hours at a time and he always returns home crying bc she's pushed him to his limit between feedings. She brushes it off saying hes just fussy which kind of irks me. Im also concerned that he's spending too much time strapped in a stroller. Is it reasonable to ask her to take shorter walks? Am I overreacting?

I am 9 months pregnant and my firm offers 16 weeks maternity leave. Well, it just so happens that I was offered a job at a new firm, and they are flexible with start date but do not provide maternity leave (understandable since I don't even work there yet). Is it possible to accept the new job with a January start date, but not tell my current firm until a normal notice period ends, so I can keep mat leave? No payback requirements or anything. Would they know somehow?
