  • Probably within a few weeks, if it was necessary. If not, I would try to wait a few months. Either way, I would wear the baby to keep them protected from germs and people trying to touch her.

  • I took Logan when he was around 7 weeks and he was a perfect angel the whole time. I had him in the sling though but he slept the whole flight. I know certain airlines have requirements about age but I flew Delta and the requirement was only that the baby had to be a few days old. lol
