Q:

Is it ok for a baby (4-6 months) to travel far by train? I live in Mumbai want to go to lucknow when my baby will be 4-6 months old. It takes 24-26 hours to reach Lucknow by train.



Dr. Riddhi Kataria

Yes you can travel with the baby even after four weeks after Birth if baby and your health is okay. Baby only breastfeeds and he or she has the privilege of ATM (any time milk). Rest, you have to take care of the hygiene otherwise.
Quick tip - 1st 6 months are the best to travel with the baby because you don't have to carry food for your baby. Secondly, keep in mind baby has to be healthy before travelling.
If you are travelling by train, try babyweaaring the baby so that baby is safe and secure and enjoys the ride.
If you are travelling by flight, breastfeed the baby while take off and landing . This will prevent irritation of ears to the baby.

Take care

Yes, totally safe. Take care of hygiene. Pack everything you need to be comfortable. All the best and enjoy your trip.
