I have a 6 month old baby and i want to take her to guatemala that would involve a jet internationally and helicopter locally. The baby will be just 6 months as we leave. She has flown in a jet and is fine, but will she be ok flying in central america in
Hello, : Hello, normally a healthy baby can use air transport after 2 weeks of age.

Each baby is different in terms of how long they may need to be on a medication. Sometimes, we keep the dosage the same throughout infancy, and as the baby grows, he weans himself off the med. Talk with your baby's doctor regarding the progress. Wish you the best! ...Read more
My 6 month old baby fell off bed (3ft) head first and bumped her head on the metal frame and has a bump on the topfront part of her head. Take her in?
Not necessarily: You need to observe the baby. If she cried initially but could be consoled and is now active and interested in her surroundings, as well as able to tolerate formula, you can watch her for worrisome signs, such as the soft spot bulging, frequent episodes of vomiting, unequal size of her pupils as well as protracted crying or difficulty arousing her.
