 I think most doctors ask that you wait until 6 weeks but the youngest I have ever flown with baby is 5 months

Well, I took my first born on a flight at 6 weeks. We were both healthy and fine, so I didn't have any issues with it. I guess it might be an issue if there are health problems

Lol yes the baby outside of the womb. I wanna visit family down in cali after our lil guy comes..I would like my hubby to be able to join cause its his famiily and also cause I hate to fly..he only gets 2 weeks off. Im planning on taking only a month off if all goes well with delivery and whatnot so I wasnt sure if we could go that early or not.

I say as long as baby and you are healthy..go for it. Little babies are easy to fly with since they sleep the whole time. You could ask the pediatrician though to be certain for your case if you have any worries.

The youngest we have flown with was five weeks. I would rather fly with 100 newborns than 1 toddler!

The biggest reason to wait is that newborns have weaker immune systems and airplanes are germfests. If you are careful to keep your kiddo away from other people, flying with a baby is pretty easy. I took my son on his first flight at 10 weeks.
