    My husband has a work trip to Orlando in September and him and I were thinking about planning a trip to Disney while he was there. The question is has anyone taken their 4 month old? We aren't too sure about flying and having him in the heat. Thank you.

    Hi Colleen,

    My youngest was 3 months old when we first traveled to Disney with her. We flew 3 hours each way, and she slept almost the whole time on the plane. I made sure to nurse her when changing altitude (up and down), as the swallowing helped her ears "pop". If you don't nurse, you'll want to have a bottle handy for him as through the years I've found the swallowing helps many babies and toddlers during the part of the flight that you really notice the altitude changing.

    We went in early October at the time and we found the weather to be beautiful. Disney has a lot of air conditioned attractions, so be sure to bring a light receiving blanket or something so he doesn't get too chilled. Our baby is the youngest of 5 and she was by far the easiest of the kids on that trip. We brought her own stroller. It was the Graco style that allows the "car seat/carrier" to clip in. She was comfortable that way and spent a lot of time sleeping and looking at all the bright colors. When we dined inside, we just carried the seat part in with us, which made it really easy.

    I say "go for it"!! You'll make many wonderful memories together and through the years you can tell him that he went to Disney before he could even crawl!

    Have a magical vacation,
