  • I was on boats non-stop when I was a baby, a kid, a teen and even now as an adult I go occasionally. So long as your baby is warm, dry and fed it should be fine. Also, you'll want to keep baby in a lifejacket :)

  • i wouldn't see why not. as long as you take sunscreen for baby, use a hat, sunglasses and make sure you have everything you could possibly need for her since there isn't a go back and grab something kind of situation in a boat and shes younger so she has to have certain things compared to an adult who can just wait til you get back...i would probably also check and see if there is some kind of lifejacket made for babies that way IF anything where to happen she'd have it on
