View Full Version : Moving with Newborn

01-24-2006, 02:44 AM
My wife is pregnant with our first child and the due date is April 3. Because of a job switch, we will move from California to Pennsylvania during the summer.

Any recommendations on the possible travel windows (we will be driving)? I would like to go sooner rather than later but I also don't want to rush anything with the newborn and I also want to make sure we are not driving during a time period where the baby should go to a doctor's appointment.

Any help is much appreciated...

I think a lot depends on how thing go after the birth. the first few weeks/months neither you or mom will get much sleep, so that is something to consider.

usually you will have a couple of appointments after you go home, and depending on the weight gain, they may want to see the baby a few times to check on weight gain.

you may want to look into trying to get a pediatrician in PA before you move, so you will have someone there ahead of time.

HTH! and congrats!
