Your baby can travel soon after birth. Most airlines prefer babies to be at least two days old, but after that, it’s up to you. Young babies generally make good travellers if they feel cuddled and secure and are fed regularly. The movement and activity often helps them sleep, too! By three months, the baby is more likely to be ready to travel. If you are flying, a front carrier or baby sling is an ideal way to transport your baby. Being carried close to the mother or father will make baby feel safe.
Baby carriers also make travelling much easier on trains and buses. If your baby is very young, a travel system with a car seat that fits on to the push chair chassis may be the best option. In this situation, a lightweight, umbrella-folding pushchair is a useful alternative.
