If all goes to plan should have baby end oct early nov, already have dd who is 3. My BIL lives in Dubai and emailed us yesterday asking if we'd like to go out there around xmas and he'll pay !! Has anyone gone somewhere like this with such a young baby and would it reallly be advisable?Any opinions greatly appreciated!!!
can you put it off til new year? You really should wait till your baby has had all her jabs before flying IMO and you don't really know what kind of delivery you will have and how up to it you will be (sorry to be ghoulish and pessimistic).
I don't see a problem with the flight, Emirates are great with babies, and it will be possible to stay cool in air-conned Dubai, just dont' pressure yourself too close to the birth if you want my opinion ( I had to consider this egarding a trip from London to UK with ds2 and it was a bit much tbh, we took ds1 to Australia when he was 5.5 mo and both he and I were well settled and hale and hearty)
LM, i travel loads with my kids (now 8mths and 4.5) because my dh works abroad and my family are scattered.
Must say, wouldn't bother me. Dubai is hardly the ends of the earth (went there myself in Jan. with the family-had a great time!)Ds was just over three mths when we went out to live in Turkey (v remote part by border with Iran) and he hadn't had all his injections.
Do what you feel comfy with-mind you a few weeks recovering post partum in Dubai sounds great to me!
Thanks suzy!! Am feeling a bit pressured really as MIL wants us all to go out and see'golden boy' around xmas but it would probably be too much. We've another problem as we haven't told anyone about PG yet so are having to lie to avoid giving answers yet!!
We're going on holiday to Greece in July with a 2 1/2 year old and an 8(ish) week old. We know the place we're going to, so reckon we should be OK. I'll let you know any tips! Going to stay with relatives should be fine.
